This pair of 52.7m tall, mixed-use towers stand proud over Herzliya Marina. The shading requirement was originally specified as an awning but the design team soon concluded that the exposed location required something stronger which was when Guthrie Douglas became involved. Our engineering team worked with the design team to integrate a supporting structure within which to fix our TESS™ 440 cabled-guided tension system. Slim wire guides and a weather resistant headbox made it easy to design the systems into the façade so that they are near invisible when retracted.
