Mestizo is a Mexican restaurant located in Leawood Kansas. The 2nd floor rooftop patio is reserved by groups for special events. The client requested a custom motorized retractable rooftop deck canopy with retractable top and sidewalls and clear vinyl windows covering 1,354 square feet of Mestizo’s outdoor dining patio.
There are 8 separate roof units made with Ferrari 502, Metallic Taupe and 11 roll up walls plus 2 entry/exit doors. The roof and sidewalls can be opened or closed within 5 minutes using a motorized remote control system. The fully engineered canopy includes an internal gutter system, aluminum structure to prevent rusting, fire retardant fabric and all seams are welded (versus sewn).
This canopy system gives the ability to control individual sections of both the rooftop and sidewalls with a simple push of a button for changing weather conditions. Entire coverage of the patio allows for year round seating which will increase revenue.
The unique fabric roof system has an elegant look of a pergola when retracted. The fabric guiderail system is supported by a strong and durable integrated extruded aluminum structural rafter and column. The header and column framework feature the aesthetic appeal of a traditional pergola. The installation required all unit pieces to be lifted in by a crane onto the 2nd floor restaurant patio.
The client was very pleased with his newly added “retractable room” and how easy it is to operate. Customers can stay dry and comfortable in this beautiful addition to the large outdoor dining area.
