With neighbours building a three story home that looks straight into our clients outdoor entertainment and pool area, Modiform were engaged to create privacy screening and shade protection. Our cantilever structures were the perfect solution.

Free From Awkward Posts!
Modiform are designing more and more of these beautiful outdoor structures that are cantilevered and free from inconvenient and unnecessary posts. The simple design of a cantilevered leg, engineered for stability and the roof, crafted to handle Australia’s climate like no other.
The main advantages of cantilevering the shade structure is that by building out from each end enables construction to be done with little disruption to what it covers. The span can be greater than that of a simple beam, because a beam can be added to the cantilever arm.
Sails That Go Beyond The Standards
Our favourite feature in the project would have to be the unique electro coating burnished copper posts, designed to subtly change in appearance as light conditions alter in the day.
