Large Custom Canopy
Our client was debuting a new restaurant in the vibrant Midtown Miami area. There was an extensive patio area they wanted to utilize to create an outdoor seating area and bar, creating an exciting place that would draw customers from the neighborhood and also provide shade and weather protection from the heat and rain.
This project consists of a very large custom outdoor patio lean-to style canopy for the newest Tap 42 Restaurant and Bar in Midtown Miami. The canopy is located over the outside patio seating area and bar at street level. Unlike the traditional fabric awning structural design, the project was designed using a tubular structure. All of the fabric attachment was concealed as best as possible to provide a seamless transition between the fabric and the structure. The structure is not just rectangular in shape, but was designed to conform to the existing contours of the building.
Our client is extremely satisfied with the final end product! The opening debut and their new location is a success! The various large structural elements of the canopy were utilized for other features of the restaurant needed, such as mounts for large screen tv’s, speakers, ceiling fans and fire sprinklers. The new canopy covers the outdoor patio and bar and really has been what they needed with all of the extensive rain that the area has experienced. The canopy has contributed to making a great space for lunch, social gatherings, and patio dining throughout the day.
