Black Rice Screens

Case Study

Winner 2018 OFPANZ Excellence Award - Blinds & Screens

Overview


Black Rice is a restaurant with an outdoor area that had been a wind tunnel and largely unusable. Surrounded by tall angled pillars (a design feature), it looked architectural, but had not been designed with the idea of extending a restaurant.

The brief was to fully enclose the space to create extra seating, and the final design encompassed a mix of static screens, doors and Glidetrak blinds. Also fire doors were installed to comply with Bodycorp requirements – Fresco made these as well.Several factors complicated the installation, including the height – necessitating mobile scaffolding -and the wind. Design wise we had to tailor the curtains around different shapes and numerous obstacles, while working around the angled roof and angled posts.

This project took weeks to install because of the heights, moving scaffolding around, and the sheer scale of the job. This job led to work creating similar screens for 2 adjacent restaurants, and all three can now serve their customers in any weather, and after further sealing with extra flashings, door brushes and weather strips, they now have a clean and safe environment.The final result exactly met the brief, all three restaurant owners are delighted.
