Shop Front Canopy – Breakwater Coffee Shop & Bistro, Brixham
A loyal customer for over 10 years, Breakwater contacted Loca Shading Designs after the facade of their waterfront cafe was severely storm damaged in March 2018. Located right at the head of Brixham harbour, the cafe is in a vulnerable position for inclement weather. Obviously this was something that they wanted to address as part of their rebuilding plans.
Undoubtedly the specific challenge here was the unique building footprint which required a multifaceted roof. The solution was a completely custom designed retractable roof system, custom built on site. It features a complex arrangement of adjustable roof structures and sliding glass screens. The windows and retractable roof can be fully opened with the touch of a button, whenever the weather permits. The end result allows stunning sea views and complete protection from the elements.
