Lorenc+Yoo Design was brought in to design a restaurant canopy for this building designed by Jon Pickard of Pickard/Chilton of New Haven CT in midtown Atlanta. LYD was commissioned to design a canopy structure that related to the clean vertical lines and the sinuous curve of the building top and anchored itself at the base of the building. The restaurant designed and installed its own canopy and the building owner rejected this design and installation and commissioned LYD to redesign the canopy paying homage to this very important Atlanta tower. LYD designed this canopy to visually join the building to have it be approved as part and parcel of the building and not a separate sign which would not be approved by the Midtown Alliance.This criteria resulted in a context-specific design which is an architectural accent to the building allowing it to gracefully engage the plaza located on Peachtree Street. Design of a single curved canopy which is made in three connected sections all reconnected to appear that it is part of the building. The right and left side have four columns attaching it to the ground plane and the TAP logo, which is the logo of the Brew House, was designed like a beer barrel that makes its way back to the building with a canopy underneath allowing the client to enter the space under cover. The right and left side are X’ wide and Y’ deep x Z’ deep. These two joined canopies have louvers to block the heat of the noonday sun and have clear glass overhead to shhield the patrons from rain. They each have two uplights to wash the underside of the canopy and numerous downlights to wash the patrons dining below. The middle portion is a 6’’diameter cylinder with an internally lit TAP logo on its face. The logo is also lit by an aura of light around the barrel as an accent. The 55-story tower is an icon tower in Midtown Atlanta giving a sinuous two hand embracing profile to the skyline. The treatment at the base of the building was important to keep the inherent value of the overall building intact and not let the retail tenants canopy take over the importance of the ground plane. The right and left side are 12’ high, the center of the canopy curves up to 18’ high and the overall width is 68’, depth is 9’ and a 3’ extension at the cylinder back to connect to the building sun screens to make it a part of the building.
