Ike & Oak Brewing Company, Woodridge, IL

The Story:

This project originally began during the COVID-19 pandemic. The owner of Ike & Oak Brewery was looking for a way to expand their outdoor seating. The motorized pergola was a nice option because of the versatility, and to ensure that the space didn’t feel enclosed. The ability to open the motorized louvers and let in light avoided that situation, while still allowing full closure when needed to protect patrons from rain. The owner later went on to add wind screens and heaters to the structure.
