Panoli Gate - India

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

As a flagship development in the area Panoli needed a striking and unique entrance. MakMax’s Indian office was able to provide a prominent entrance structure to suit. The project, Panoli Gate House presented a new challenge for MakMax engineers. The large 1,300 sqm area required shade, weather protection, as well as a plan for collecting run off. Inspired by the design and functionality of the St Tropez products MakMax already produces as standard products, engineers decided to replicate this shape and function on a grand scale.

The inverted cone shape of the modular structure eliminates rain water run off by collecting all water through integrated concealed drains. The design allows all water collected to enter the supporting columns, from there it is either stored or eliminated below ground.
