The operable screen protects patrons from the sun and provides uninterrupted views of the ocean.
Tilt was engaged to design, manufacture and install a series of bi-folding screens for the iconic Stokehouse restaurant rebuild in St Kilda. The screens were to provide a distinctive yet functional façade that offers uninterrupted views.
The screens sit outside the restaurant windows and provide protection from the sun, but can be raised to highlight the 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.
The charred aesthetic of the timber batons pays homage to the previous restaurant and its demise when engulfed in fire.
The unique design retains the character of the building while considering the comfort of patrons – a combination that results in the greatest commercial success.
