Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Novum was contracted to engineer, furnish and install two ETFE air filled pillow roofs in the John Hope Gateway building at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Over the restaurant, Novum installed a three layer Air Filled Pillow System with a screen print on the top ETFE pillow layer to provide shade to patrons below. Solar control was not necessary for the roof above the tree filled reception area, so Novum suggested a more economical two layer Air Filled Pillow System without screen print.
