Umbrella Canopy added to Museum Café in Northumberland
Posted on 16/03/2020
The Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum has a fantastic café on site, but they were lacking a permanent cover for the outdoor seating. A&S Landscape was asked to design and install a stylish and practical shade solution.
Project – Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum café add umbrella canopy in Northumberland
Product – Maxima Umbrella
Requirement – The team at the Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum in Hexham wanted their outside seating area to be more accessible throughout the year. It was decided to add a decking area to the café and with it a shelter for the customers. The structure would have to suit the surrounding area and not take up too much of the seating area.
Solution – A fabric umbrella canopy was installed outside of the café. The Maxima Umbrella measures 6m x 6m, so plenty of tables can fit under the shelter. Finished with Slate Grey steelwork and a Porcelain Green fabric roof, the structure works perfectly with the area. The umbrella was made with a waterproof material so that it can be used in the wetter months too.
Result – The café customers can now enjoy their refreshments outside under the canopy. Whether they want some shade from the sun or a cover from the rain, the umbrella is the perfect place to sit under. Built on one post, the structure takes up minimal space on the decking.
