The largest Infinity Canopy ever installed was masterfully utilized in the redesign of the unparalleled Goode Co. Armadillo Palace in Houston, Texas. The truly Texan restaurant is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike to gather for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Family and friends looking to enjoy live music, dancing, yard games, and authentic Texas food and culture, can now head to the restaurant’s outdoor space while keeping cool under the expansive canopies. The record-setting modular canopy enhances the outdoor atmosphere making the area welcoming any time of the day, all year round.
Architect Jim Herd, in partnership with The Goode Co., knew Infinity Canopy was the perfect shade product to transform an empty 4,000-square-foot space into an extended, eclectic room for people to dance, drink, and even cook an entire animal over the restaurant’s fire pits. The major remodel turned this already unique hot spot into an unmatched venue for lunch, a night out, or a private event. Patrons can eat and socialize under 2,500 square feet of refreshing shade created by five rows of 10’ wide Infinity Canopy. The large space has an intimate feel due to the creation of two distinct sections with an opening in the middle. The intelligent design of the canopies also allows the entire canopy to be attached at the center with four magnetic latches. Two cables are attached to metal supports on each canopy for seamless structural stability.
The versatility of this design allows the owners of this trendy entertainment mecca to cover the entire outdoor dining, concert and bar area, or open it so guests can enjoy the sunshine or gaze at the stars.
