Retractable Roof Canopy

The owners of the Perch Restaurant wanted to expand the dining area on to the outdoor patio area on the 15th Floor of the downtown Los Angeles building.  Eide introduced a kinetic shade system designed with a combination of four motorized retractable top covers and four vertical screens, entirely supported by an engineered 90MPH wind-load welded steel frame structure.  Eide successfully completed the design, fabrication and installation on the 15th Floor, which met the client’s requirement for a retractable roof system with retracting side curtains.
