Spanish Onion, Willowfields Primary School, Sunderland

The largest Onion Shelter we have ever made, maybe the largest in the known universe! Twelve 5m long steambent glue laminated Oak ribs meet at a central hub 4.5m above ground. A three meter diameter oak floor holds the ribs at ground level, and eleven seating bays connect them at low level. Above oak roof spars attached to each rib create the roof shape which is boarded with pine t&g boards and topped with epdm rubber, 100mm of substrate and the gorgeous Wildflower matting from Pictorial Meadows here in Sheffield.
