Custom Entrance Awning
Miami Beach, FL
This awning was crafted for the world renown Faena Hotel. The hotel needed an awning on the side entrance of their hotel that would be a signature “one of a kind”. The design and color were very important to the designer. Red is the “signature” color that is used throughout every aspect of the resort and all of their other properties. They wanted an awning that would be out of the ordinary.
This is a very custom marque “scallop” curved style entrance awning for the side entrance of a hotel. Sunbrella Jockey Red was used for the cover. The fabric was fire-treated to meet permitting requirements. The awning has a unique feature, in that there are large holes that allow those underneath to look through, to see the sky. This was achieved with large pipe and special large “grommets”. It makes for an unusual feature that we have never had requested before. There is also a ceiling liner on the bottom of the awning to hide the frame structure. The frame and fabric department also had to take into consideration all of the light fixtures that would be installed in this awning.
The entrance awning for the Faena Hotel and Resort is very unique, like all of the features of this Iconic Hotel. The very custom awning makes it easy to find the side entrance for the Hotel. It also is the “One of a Kind” look that the client wanted.
