Milk Market Limerick

Limerick, Irland, 2011

A membrane canopy has been designed for the historic milk market courtyard in Limerick as part of the refurbishment efforts in order to enable the local farmers market to take place independantly from environmental influences but still achieve an outdoor ambience. To optimize the usability of the 1,600 m² covered area, the membrane is supported by just one eccentrically aligned mast and is suspended to the four corners of the courtyard without touching any of the preserved structures.
