The Bernstein: Restaurant with large roof terrace

TheBernstein_Managerin

"It was very important to us that we find a weatherproof solution so that our guests don't have to run straight inside in case of light rain showers, but can remain seated outside in peace and quiet, and which also simply offers us as restaurateurs planning security."

Maren Kauffmann, Manager The Bernstein


markilux markant for "The Bernstein

When redesigning the outdoor area of "The Bernstein" restaurant, the flexible freestanding awning markilux markant was chosen. Thanks to the versatile configuration options, an individual sun and weather protection is created that exactly meets the requirements that the restaurant management placed on a sun protection solution. Due to its location on the roof, outdoor catering entails special requirements in terms of stability. The markilux markant is a robust model that brings with it the appropriate statics for sufficient safety - even at higher wind speeds.

Sun protection tailored to individual requirements

Holistic concept: interior & exterior in harmony

markilux design awnings impress with the perfect interplay between form and function. Individual configurations from over a million different combinations allow for a functional and visually elegant connection of outdoor and indoor areas. The awning blends harmoniously into the overall appearance of the building and becomes an additional eye catcher. In addition to the perfect appearance, which is coordinated with the architecture, markilux sun protection is oriented towards the individual needs and local conditions of a property.

In the case of "The Bernstein" restaurant, the interior was extensively redesigned. In order to create a connection between inside and outside, the interior design served as inspiration and basis for the selection of the appropriate awning system. The optimal solution was quickly found with the free-standing awning of the markilux markant model. In addition to the design aspect, the free-standing awning has other advantages for the design of the roof terrace.

On the roof terrace of the Bernstein - 25 metres above the Jahnplatz in Bielefeld - it can get a bit windy now and then. On the one hand, this requires an awning model with a secure stand. The freestanding markilux markant awning is a perfect solution for this condition, because thanks to a concrete foundation or wall connection (not available here), the wind cannot harm the product. On the other hand, thanks to the integration of vertical cassette awnings and lateral privacy and wind protection, guests remain cosy outside even in light gusts.

Rain protection offers planning security for restaurateurs

In addition to protection from sun and wind, the awning roof also provides a safe place to sit when it rains. Thus markilux strikingly covers many different weather conditions and offers a safe place to sit - whether in spring, summer, autumn or winter. Even during a brief rain shower, guests can remain seated outside. This offers both the guests a relaxed visit to the restaurant and the restaurateur a higher degree of planning security. Sun and weather protection makes outdoor gastronomy a safe business field to build on.

Clear view ahead

Due to the location of the restaurant - above the rooftops of the city - another requirement for the sun protection solution was to maintain the beautiful view. The horizontal roof of the markilux markant and the panoramic windows on the sides continue to offer the restaurant guests a unique view over Bielefeld. Thanks to the various design options, all of the Bernstein's wishes could be fulfilled. A cosy atmosphere that invites guests to linger in the rooftop bar for a long time could thus be created. The fact that the terrace is in use every day pleases not only guests but also the staff. The outdoor seating is very well received by the guests.

Light and warmth as a feel-good factor

Complementary equipment such as light and radiant heaters additionally contribute to creating a cosy ambience. Even in the evening and in colder seasons, warmth is a decisive feel-good factor that helps to prolong enjoyment on the roof terrace. Low temperatures are therefore no longer an obstacle to enjoying life outside to the full.

In addition to warmth, the right lighting creates a cosy atmosphere. The various lighting options provided by the markilux striking blend stylishly into the design concept of the restaurant. The attractive lighting solution builds a bridge to the elegant interior design. The interior and exterior thus create a harmonious overall picture.

Smooth assembly thanks to teamwork

From the individual planning of the sun protection project of "The Bernstein" to the implementation of the project, the cooperation between the restaurant, markilux team : projectthe markilux specialist partner and various local companies in steel construction, timber construction and electrical engineering worked hand in hand. The markilux specialist partner Arno Beyer GmbH was responsible for organising the installation. Thanks to good teamwork, the installation was completed within four days.

Variable in form and function

The freestanding markilux markant awning blends perfectly into your design - whether freestanding or integrated into the existing architecture. Thanks to the various design options in terms of colour, fabric design, optional wind or privacy protection, lighting or heat radiators, the result is a harmonious overall appearance for your outdoor area.
