Perfect Lines

If you are an Architect in need of a designer’s touch for the exterior of your building, an awning or canopy system can make all the difference! Our architectural canopy solutions, custom awnings or metal sunshades can provide a modern and nuanced feel to any commercial project.

Whether simple or complex, architects have been partnering with Vestis Systems over hundreds of projects and when architecture is done right, the result is a memorable building that people enjoy looking at.

While there are several ways architectural aesthetics can be improved, one of the best ways is through architectural canopies or durable, fabric or canvas awnings.

Vestis can create a custom solution to capture your imagination and bring any architect’s vision to life, even providing installation services after the canopy has been built and delivered. We can also custom tailor the project to suit almost any environment with many options for finish, and fabric covering materials.

Here are some factors that you should consider for your next architectural canopy:

Your customers are in need of protection from the elements. Give them shelter from the heat, rain or snow with a beautifully designed canopy. After all, what could be better than sipping a cool drink in the shade? Customers will come back time and time again!

Is your building plain or outdated looking? Consider outdoor canopies to enhance the aesthetic value of your structure and stand apart from the rest.

For businesses in urban settings, finding the entrance to a building can be potentially confusing or frustrating. Architectural canopies not only give direction to your customers on where to enter, but provide an inviting experience, welcoming them through your doors!
