Hoop Shelter

Our Handspring Design Hoop Shelter offers a beautifully designed and sustainable solution to comfortable seating, shade and shelter in open outdoor spaces. Inspired by the organic circle, this beautiful shape provides infinite possibilities for adaptions and customisations to create shelters truly personalised for an outdoor space. It creates an imaginative and fun environment provides a socialising point for the community.

This Hoop shelter is perfect for urban and rural areas as well as urban parks, skate parks, gardens, picnic areas, where it can become a landmark and meeting place for adults and children to hang out, chill out and chat.

Have an existing theme for your outdoor space? We specialise in altering and customising these beautiful structures to specific design specifications to create shelters unique to that space. Read our Royal Botanical Gardens Kew story here.

Each shelter can be left as organic natural wood or can be created in a wide range of colours allowing for bold and eye-catching colour schemes, designed in line with community youth engagement programmes. For example, tough acrylic roof panels can be included to add a splash of colour and provide further weather protection, shade & views. Protected by anti-vandalism detailing ensures that this shelter will withstand every-day use and long-term weathering. It also includes noise reduction insulation ensuring suitability for residential areas as well as more exposed open spaces.

Every shelter is made from UK sourced FSC Oak and Douglas Fir as the main materials, jointed through time honoured traditional methods as well as more modern techniques using steel plates and fixings.

Handspring Design work as a craft-based enterprise with creativity and sustainability running through the heart of everything they do.
