How we create an all year round outdoor dining solution for your hospitality business


We have been busy since the new year working with a number of South West and Cornwall based hospitality establishments, providing them with a flexible, all year round solution to outdoor dining that will last long after the effects of the pandemic. These establishments, a number of which are grade listed, are looking to create an outdoor space that can be open, light and airy during the warmer summer days yet can transform into a more enclosed, warm and inviting space when the days are colder and darker.

Providing and all year round Flexible Outdoor Environment

The owners of these establishments are confident that they can increase their footfall if they provide the right outdoor environment. They also know that flexibility is key not only when it comes to planning but also providing the option to host both open-air and covered events, bring even more revenue into their business.

A considerable amount of time has been spent brainstorming and discussing options with the landlords and owners, exploring cost versus return, effects of weather and how many covers they were looking to seat along with researching what would be permitted from a local planning perspective.

Yellow Brick Road Design has now designed an outdoor timber low pitched structure with steel connecting components and a heavy-duty marine canvas roof and removable side panels. This provides a fully flexible Summer Winter outdoor dining solution.

How you can fully customise an outdoor dining experience

Our structures can be customised with wooden slats, stone walls, curtains, panels and louvres to name but a few, and are designed with minimal structure helping to create open, flowing spaces where light and airflow easily passes through. Each structure possesses a solid foundation to ensure a more permanent look and feel. However, due to the component design, the structure is fully demountable for storage if required.

Bespoke or Standard sizes

Our structures are available fully bespoke or manufactured to standard sizes. They come with full groundwork’s installation drawings and details, along with operations and maintenance manual for self-installation OR Yellow Brick Road Design can supply a full design, manufacture and project managed build solution.

Withstanding all-year-round weather conditions

In general, these structures are the most effective long term solution to outdoor dining spaces as they contain both the flexibility required in terms of shade, heating & light. Being built on substantial foundation base slabs, solid timber sections and fabricated steel connecting components married with removable panels, these structures can withstand year-round weather conditions while also being visibly appealing for any outdoor setting. They provide the perfect solution to a range of outdoor covering requirements within the commercial or domestic market.
