Outdoor Commons

Forks Market, Winnipeg, MB

Working closely with the Architect (Aaron Pollock from Number Ten Architectural Group), together brought his vision to life—a wall with a hidden door.  This door would open up to the Brewery, but when closed would function as a feature wall.  

Additionally, the wall, when open, would double in function creating both an open atmosphere and acting as a canopy or overhang for those serving on the patio.  The degree of the door when open match the degree of the already installed overhang, creating a seamless visual. When working with the existing degree of the canopy, we needed to ensure precise measurements and operation with minimal tolerances. 

The top mount drive-system both prevented any obstructions on the interior (allowing the door to operate without interfering with interior coolers or counters) while keeping the mechanical parts of the doors operation a good distance from the public to ensure safety. 

We created a custom frame allowing for a specific exterior finish to be attached. The custom support frame provided with the door also allowed for a quick and seamless installation.  This addition to the Forks Market space was both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional in creating a flex space for the public to enjoy.
