Just as a shelter creates a safe haven in a storm, this streamlined outdoor construction provides a dry refuge in wet weather. The structure can also provide shade on sunny days, making it suitable for all seasons. Two or more can be combined to create a flexible shelter-and-seating system that can be assembled in a range of configurations. The floor deck inside is spacious enough to provide room for several adults, while an optional bench can be attached outside to add seating. Children enjoy using the space as a play area, making it a perfect addition to playgrounds, primary schools and childcare facilities.
