Festival Spotlight: Intent at Arcadia Spectacular
Fire, flying and beats
Intent works with iconic locations to create luxury spaces.
Bold architectural firsts in iconic London locations have become the hallmark of Embassy Garden developments. We partnered with them in May this year on plans for their new, stylish South London site, Nine Elms, with stunning rooftop views across the Thames to the American Embassy.
Never ones for out-of-the-box design, the unique space called for a one of a kind canopy, with a custom stretch shelter reaching over their entire decking area. The space is used for client events throughout the year, so they needed a structure with unshakable strength that was flexible enough for us to quickly rig and de-rig, even at short notice.
We brought in our specialist, bespoke hospitality team ‘MyTent’ to take over the project. MyTent have worked with venues and event spaces large and small across the UK’s major cities, hence they know a thing or two about maximising the potential of outdoor space, with a sharp focus on design aesthetic.
Using the highest quality materials and know-how, the team work to spec to create year-round comfort and warm, elegantly lit environments. The seamless service means installing and uninstalling, cleaning and storing the stretch tent so it’s ready to go whenever needed.
While rooftop builds can be tricky, the expert team are experienced in facing down the elements in innovative ways. The majority of the tent is anchored to the ground four stories below with tough-grade rope and hardware, ensuring that even in this high, exposed location the structure withstands the fiercest winds with ease.
The result was nothing less than eye catching, driving past you can’t miss it! The Intent team are ready for their next iconic design challenge, so get in touch, we’d love to hear about your project.
