The Brokenwood wine estate is located in the "Hunter Valley" in New South Wales, Australia. In October of last year, the outdoor terrace of the estate received an awning system from markilux. The newly designed outdoor area can now be used for events and wine tastings in all weathers.
Over the past 50 years, Brokenwood, located a good 165 kilometres northwest of Sydney, has developed into one of Australia's best-known wineries. Today, wine tours and tastings are held here regularly. However, the estate's large outdoor terrace has not been used to its full potential until now. That was about to change. Therefore, the management of the winery decided to have the terrace covered with a large markilux awning system.
The Australian team : project has covered an area of almost 180 square metres. The system consists of three markilux markant units, with four additional markilux 970 folding arm awnings mounted on the sides and front. By combining the different models and awning types, the sun protection solution offers maximum flexibility. Depending on the position of the sun, the entire surface or only parts of it can be shaded.
The sun protection also serves as weather protection. Because the additional features also contribute to flexible use. Dimmable LED light creates the desired atmosphere on the restaurant terrace. Paired with radiant heaters, the stay at the Brokenwood Winery becomes a cosy affair. In future, the terrace will be used for various events, regardless of the weather or time of day.
In addition to the requirements for the functions of the awning system, the modern design was a decisive factor for the choice of product. The appearance of the sun protection was to skilfully accentuate the discreetly natural, wood-clad architecture of the building ensemble. After initial discussions with markilux team : project in Australia, it was clear that markilux fulfilled the wishes for a perfect combination of function and design. As good design must always go hand in hand with excellent, reliable technology, our product range offers high-quality products with the best looks.
A project of this magnitude requires a great deal of know-how and experience in the planning and implementation of sun protection projects. team : project therefore worked with the specialist company "Blindmaster" from Brookvale, a suburb of Sydney. The company has been familiar with the markilux product portfolio for years and has many years of expertise in the sun protection segment. Due to the professionalism of the assembly, the installation of the system was completed within two days.
