AMONG THE DYNAMIC AND PROMISING AREA FOR PUBS AND RESTAURANTS ON NOTRE-DAME STREET IN THE HEART OF GRIFFINTOWN, MONTREAL IS THE RESTAURANT GRINDER. GRINDER IS CHARACTERIZED BY CLASSIC AND MODERN ELEMENTS SUCH AS GLASS AND METAL. TO MATCH THIS, TULIP-SHAPED UMBRELLAS WERE INSTALLED AS AN EXTENSION TO THE ROOF. THEY ALSO SERVE AS SUN AND RAIN PROTECTION. RAINWATER IS CHANNELED UNDER THE WOODEN FLOORS VIA A DRAINAGE SYSTEM. THE ARCHITECT ZEBULON PERRON CREATED A COMFORTABLE AND COZY RESTAURANT WITH A PLEASANT ATMOSPHERE.
For the creation of a roof extension outside the restaurant, five modern tulips umbrellas, sized 10 x 13 ft, were installed. This gives the guests the opportunity to sit inside or outside, regardless of weather. Height differences were achieved by using extended folding adapters, which made it possible for the umbrellas to overlap. Since the umbrellas overlap, the roof is connected, which means that no rain will be able to go through the umbrellas.
