Why you might want to design awnings into your hospitality projects

Bespoke canopy systems are about more than shade and shelter. They improve a venue's visibility, add a welcoming, inclusive feel and contribute to community placemaking

All-weather outdoor dining at Ron Gastrobar, Amsterdam

When restaurateur Ron Blaauw opened one of his Ron Gastrobar restaurants in Amsterdam in 2013 he brought in Markilux to help design the outdoor dining space. 

The result is an awning combination of track-guided pergolas supported by posts and folding-arm awnings. The awning covers, with Ron Gastrobar branding, can be extended and retracted electrically. 

Built-in LED lighting and radiant heaters ensure a cosy, warm feeling in the spaces below into the evening.

Blaauw believes offering his guests more comfort by covering his terrace with heated awnings has been a clear advantage for the business.

'The Markilux awnings allow the large terrace to be used all year round,' he says.

'Even when the temperature drops, you can still eat and drink in a relaxing atmosphere. You can always find a wonderful spot to sit. We are noticing that our guests now stay longer and we have acquired lots of new customers.'
