The Schulze and Birch Biscuit Company requested shade structures for their employees on their break.  It was to be a space where they can gather together or be alone by themselves to recharge.  With limited materials, we created a structure that allows for uses to both sit and stand in groups or individually.  The latticing that spans between 2 posts strengthens the structure as well as supporting two table tops at different heights and a place for plants to grow.
