Clients: Milsom Hotels & Restaurants Group
The owners of the Milsom Hotels & Restaurants Group wanted to cover their dining terrace which enjoys a wonderful setting overlooking the river. The success of the sail structure at Milsoms encouraged Paul and Geraldine Milsom to consider another awning at their prestigious riverside restaurant on the banks of the Stour. The contraints were that it could not attach to the listed building and had to be invisible from the nearby bridge.
By using curved painted steel booms supported by 8 stainless steel masts we created a simple but elegant sail canopy which can be easily removed during the winter. The structure is freestanding with an integral gutter.
The "Holiday" fabric is tensioned by 12mm 1/19 wires and rigging screws.
