CREPA

During a summer holiday, Crepa Hefhelp’s CEO thought of a tent for his new showroom. Kampman Architects designed the structure and consulted Tentech for engineering.

The expressive roof stands out in its surrounding of functionalistic, strict buildings. The white color contrasts with the anthracite of the adjacent premises. The tent is a prominent beacon in its surrounding and can be seen from a far distance, giving Crepa’s showroom its own identity in an industrial area.

From a structural point of view, the membrane cover is completely unrelated to its adjacent offices. The membrane is supported centrally by three columns and is circularly spread by outriggers. Cables stabilize the columns and outriggers. In the high-points of the membrane bow-formed cables are used to reduce stresses in the membrane.

Textile architecture projects

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
