Canopy Array at Hotel Bel-Air Restaurant
The Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles wanted to create an elegant and unique year-around outdoor dining experience for the Wolfgang Puck restaurant. The space called for the feel of a Spanish courtyard, with private alcoves overlooking Swan Lake. The need was for a stylish architectural shade solution to create the desired atmosphere while complementing the high-end dining experience.
Markilux worked with Architects from the Rockwell Group (NY), Designers HLW International, LLP (Santa Monica, CA) and Morley Builders (Santa Monica, CA) to design and install a stunning M8800 canopy array over a custom structure designed by the architectural team.
The four large coupled canopies are installed in a unique back-to-back arrangement to provide shade over the expansive outdoor seating area. The sleek cassettes of the Markilux 8800 are colored to match the support structure. A special fire-resistant fabric was supplied. The fabric fully retracts into the cassettes when not needed for shading to ensure many years of elegant performance.
