  Designed in the Spring of 2014 for a residential client in Northampton, this combined pergola and trellis system weighs over two tons and required several hundred linear feet of Corten weathering steel to fabricate. Using thick angle iron pieces and solid steel pins, we were able to create a series of mission style supports and posts to complement the owner’s contemporary farmhouse residence.

  Forged vine-work wraps around the main elements of this project “overtaking” the built structure. This pairs well with the Wisteria that the client plans to grow up it’s corner posts. All elements are of a COR-TEN alloy, which patinas to a protective oxidized finish and prevents further degradation by the New England environment.
