Palm Canopy

Towering along the entire coastline of Mackenzie Beach in Larnaca, palm trees planted in the 1920s form a striking vista against the seafront. Inspired by this natural beauty and historical charm, nestled amidst the palm-fringed shoreline, rises an installation as a testament to nature’s beauty. This wooden structure draws inspiration from the Mediterranean Sea and the graceful form of palm trees swaying in the gentle sea breeze. Towering arches, reclaimed wooden columns, and beams spanning 6 meters in length and height mimic the organic lines of palm fronds, creating harmony with the natural landscape.

Approaching Mackenzie Beach, visitors are greeted by Palm Canopy’s silhouette against the horizon, surrounded by a scenic oasis of palm trees. Its wooden lattice silhouette casts intricate patterns of light and shadow on the ground below, creating a sensory experience. As the sun sets, painting the sky in shades, the wooden structure stands as a beacon of artistry and innovation on the shores of Mackenzie Beach. Palm Canopy is more than just a place of beauty; it’s a symbol of sustainability and environmental stewardship. Crafted from reclaimed wood and fiberglass, it is designed to blend seamlessly with its natural surroundings and serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving the coastal ecosystem for future generations to enjoy.
