Cielo Restaurant, Birmingham
Cielo is a fashionable Italian restaurant located in Birmingham’s bustling Brindley Place. It’s a very lively part of town with numerous restaurants vying for the business of passing shoppers and office workers. Cielo’s goal was to create a point of difference in order to increase demand.
Loca Shading Designs proposed a hanging roof system, delivering contemporary al fresco dining in the long narrow outdoor space. The retractable roof is entirely adaptable and can be tailored to specific weather conditions at the touch of a button. Closed for complete protection or fully open when customers prefer to be outdoors. The addition of glass screens provides further weather protection as well as some privacy from passing pedestrians. Last but not least, wall mounted quartz heaters are the ultimate finishing touch ensuring a warm atmosphere year-round. The eye-catching structure is perfectly colour matched with Cielo’s branding, providing exactly the differentiation they had hoped for.
