Henderson Connellan Estate Agent Awnings
This case study of two retractable awnings at the property of an estate agents in South Leicestershire is a fantastic example of a retail installation that serves a practical purpose and makes an aesthetic statement.
This estate agents in Market Harborough, a small town in the East Midlands, needed some awnings to help provide shelter and shading for those working inside, as well as to help make a statement on a moderately busy high street.
The estate agents is a rectangular building with large glass panels that are open to sun exposure, greatly warming the property and making it uncomfortable as well as causing glare. These Markilux awnings were fitted to two different sides of the shop front and they helped to provide shade and cool down the glass within. Full cassette awnings were chosen due to the property not having any cover from the weather.
They particularly wanted a system that woukld could be branded in order to fit with the companies well known and easily recognisable aesthetic. The rich green colour scheme was something that would be easy enough to match, but the ability to have the logo and slogan on the awning was a touch that really helped this become an eye catching installation.
Due to the nature of the street and location, not only does the awning provide shading for the shop, but it also helps protect the narrow path from getting wet, making this an extra inviting area. Shade Plus Systems were also requested in order to protect from low lying sun.
