Description: Awnings for a restaurant with a summer terrace with fencing and heaters

Implemented: in 2014

Architectural monument with a cozy terrace

The forefront of Riga dwellers' favorite Vērmanes Garden is occupied by Tokyo city restaurant. The historic building of a balneary built on a natural spring has preserved its contours since the 19th century ̶ and now it is an entertainment center Vernissage. An open-air summer terrace should have blended well with the complex architectural  skyline ...

Therefore we have chosen stationary pentroof-design structures, placing them on both sides of the main entrance. From the outside it looks like the terrace cuddles up to the wing of the classical building, adding warm, vivid accents to its image. The terrace, however, stands on its own frame, not touching the building and at the same time sheltering visitors from sun and rain. Langsyne, awnings were made of striped impregnated linen fabric, and we have used special translucent PVC fabric very similar to linen by Serge Ferrari. The color solution echos the colors of Vernissage, but due to more saturated tints it imparts a slightly nostalgic feel to the terrace.

Along the perimeter the summer terrace is surrounded by light modular fencing made of aluminum and glass. It creates the feeling of security and comfort for the restaurant's customers, and at the same time gives the sense of completeness to the design. Flower vases are fixed to the fencing from the outside. You can change the exterior design by using different stickers and flowers, according to the season or your personal taste!

When the weather is cold, infrared heaters provide the comfortable temperature. Therefore, the open terrace can be used starting from early spring, when visitors are so eager to enjoy the sunshine and listen to the sound of birds, and until late autumn. Here, in the heart of Riga, you can enjoy Japanese food and see the history unfold in front of you - from Marquis Paulucci, who ordered to lay out the park in the city center in 1813, and honorable Anna Gertrude Woermann, who donated ten thousand marks to the project, to chess genius - Michael Tal.
