A basic flat canopy was to be turned into something more exciting and utilitarian at the Fairfield Hawaii resort in Waikiki, Oahu Reef, Hawaii. The original concept was flat and inconsistent with the character of fabric and fabric structures. It would have collected water, dirt and cigarette butts, so the crew created 11 leaf designs, which won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the multiple fabric structures category of the 2007 International Achievement Awards, over the entries, escalators, walkways and pool sitting areas. It has become the centerpiece of the renovation project. The general contractor was extremely happy with how this provides rain and sun protection throughout. This is a classic example of the awning contractor taking a customer’s concept to a different and higher level using his experience and design skills.
