Under one roof, a lot can happen! Big Roof is an oversized garden pergola designed for dining and events at Coriander Kitchen & Farm’s restaurant in Detroit, Michigan. The project explores collage arrangements of off-the-shelf parts to propose new relationships between the site and the restaurant. Triangular trusses designed with HD Structural are built of nominal lumber and opens up views of the constantly changing sky above. During the colder winter months, the structure acts as a lantern, illuminating the surrounding landscape. During the warmer months, the plastic facade is easily removed, allowing activity to spill into the outdoors.
