Atero / Car Shade


This new prototype of a carshade was presented first as a part of a diploma thesis in Berlin 2007. In addition to the special textile material, especially the shape can not be compared with any known carport. Because of the development at the university, a mature project shows up, considering all technical requirements and in particular the usability. With the simple basic but powerful form, the carshade is able to be relieved by its makeshift image and can become a strong architectural element, advancing the visual quality of residential developments.
