Canopy - Castel Gandegg

Messner Architects as Architects

Scale-like elements of weathered steel with consecutively changing proportions and dimensions along the main axis cover the driveway to an underground garage.

The proximity to a castle evokes a design inspired by knight's amors and armadillo bugs. When approaching the driveway the position of the single elements of the canopy expresses a cer-tain lightness, while when leaving home the elements form a protective carapace.
