In the context of studying urban spaces and urban furnishings, modern design canopies  play a crucial role as protective elements for storefronts, terraces, and entrances to establishments. They enrich these spaces with their appearance, serving not just an important but an essential function.

Modern canopies maximize the functionality of outdoor spaces and, when constructed with creative and cutting-edge techniques, have the potential to enhance the areas they are meant to protect, becoming a true business card for the establishment.

Characteristics, Benefits, and Costs of Modern Canopies

Modern design canopies tailored for urban settings have become an increasingly popular solution for providing covered areas for people waiting for public transportation or engaging in outdoor activities.

Canopies are designed to combine aesthetics with functionality, adding a touch of style to the streets and public areas where they are installed.

But let’s start with the basics: what is a canopy?

A canopy is a structure placed above a specific area to provide protection from the elements such as rain, snow, wind or sun.

In addition to weather protection, canopies can be used as design elements to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the surrounding area.

Modern design canopies are made from various materials such as glass, steel, aluminum, and wood, giving them an elegant and contemporary look.

Furthermore, they can be customized to meet the specific requirements of a project or the area in question.

The cost of creating a design canopy depends on the complexity of the project, size, materials used, and the level of customization.

Modern Design Canopies in LAB23’s Catalog

At LAB23, we have executed several projects involving modern and design canopies, all aimed at improving the city’s appearance and accessibility for its residents.

One perfect example is Rhang: created by Righetto and Partners, it stands out with its essential and refined shape, making it easily adaptable to any architectural environment, from traditional to contemporary. It is a robust and functional product, ideal for bicycle and e-scooter parking.

Its galvanized steel structure is coated with PP powder paint, available in a wide range of RAL color tones.

Wind is another canopy designed by LAB23, ideal for public transportation waiting areas in the city. Wind is constructed with a steel sheet structure, and it features a slanted front sheet that gives the canopy a distinctive appearance. Upon the customer’s request, tempered glass panels can replace the rear and side panels.

The product is manufactured using electrolytic zinc-coated steel and then painted with PP powder, allowing you to choose your preferred RAL color.

These are just two examples of innovative canopies that LAB23 has envisioned for urban spaces.
