Recently the Ocean Beach Hotel in Umina underwent a renovation to their beer garden. The project required the area to be functional both day and night and have a portion of the garden protected from the elements.
Consideration also had to be made as to what other structures were already in place. The Helioscreen All Seasons retractable roof system with dimmable lights was specified by the project architects for its durability, great looks and year round weather protection.
The existing steel structure had to be retained and the All Seasons system was to be integrated. With the flexibility of the Helioscreen system this was achieved. The many colour choices available the system was able to be blended in to the colour scheme required. The integrated dimmable lights enabled the owner to control the ambiance of the garden for whatever functions they may be having. Choice of sunblock mosaic for the fabric from the range of options available, gave the system some theatre and adds character to the structure. This all blended seamlessly with the existing decor.
The overall outcome for this project was well received. The beer garden is now fully functional both in the day time and night with a large shade area that the system provides and also protection from those days of inclement weather.
