St Kilda Stokehouse – Operable Facade

TILT was engaged to design, manufacture and install a series of bi-folding screens for the iconic Stokehouse restaurant rebuild in Melbourne.

The screens provide a distinctive yet functional façade that offers uninterrupted views. This unique design retains the character of the building, while considering the comfort of patrons – a combination that results in the greatest commercial success.


The screens sit outside the restaurant windows and provide protection from the sun, but can be raised to highlight beautiful ocean views.

The beachside location is a demanding environment for mechanical structures. The design utilises marine grade stainless steel for the fabricated structural elements, which is paramount for longevity and reliable performance.
