Shade for Restaurant Patio

Project goal:

Expand the outdoor eating area by creating a shaded, comfortable and beautiful outside patio that provides unobstructed view of the water. The style and structure configuration must compliment the restaurant design using the ”boat sail” theme.


Designed and installed white triangle-shaped shade sails with white columns. Shades are partially attached to the building. Columns are strategically placed to create an open view of the marina. Shade structure is engineered and permitted for 175 mph wind loads. As a result, the restaurant is welcoming more customers and patrons are enjoying the beautiful Florida scenery.
