TILT delivered an operable roof for a new Sydney restaurant, enabling the venue to transform its fully enclosed dining space into an open-air courtyard, with just the touch of a button.
Thanks to the retractable roof, which TILT designed, manufactured and managed the installation of, the recently opened Tequila Mockingbird Restaurant in Paddington is able to operate at maximum capacity and offer a variety of flexible dining options. The flexible roof offers patrons not just seasonal variety – with fully enclosed and alfresco dining – but also assurance that the venue can manage their event despite the weather.
The one touch control system enables the roof to be stopped at any position and includes battery backup to ensure it can be closed in the event of a power outage. Aesthetics were also an important consideration in the project, with the roof designed specifically to suit the architectural intent.
TILT was contracted to Arcon Projects and engaged in a collaborative design exercise with several project consultants, to realise the retractable roof design for this challenging renovation.
Tequila Mockingbird was designed by Luchetti Krelle. Base building designed by Ian Burl Architects and Arcon Projects.
