Have you ever stopped for a second and paid attention to the outdoor layout of your favorite coffee shop? When designing the perfect outdoor seating space, Starbucks’ priority is the comfort and satisfaction of their customers. The brand wanted to create a custom area with a pergola where their customers could sit down to enjoy their coffee and catch up with family and friends.

Azenco Outdoor brought Starbucks’ vision to life with the help of our partner Pergolatek, designing a custom R-BREEZE™ pergola in Lancaster, PA.

  • Size: 435 sq ft
  • Options: Fixed louvers
  • Color: All black pergola
  • Benefits: Create a Starbucks outdoor seating space for customers to relax under partial shade while having their coffee.

Classic Style Meets Modern Innovation: The R-BREEZE™ Pergola Takes Center Stage

The R-BREEZE™ is one of Azenco Outdoor’s newest innovations. The pergola offers the perfect blend of functionality and elegance, matching the brand’s aesthetic. Its unique features also add a sense of sophistication to the outdoor seating area while having a minimalistic design.

These features are what made the R-BREEZE™ stand out:

  • Vertical slats: a layout that offers a modern and minimalistic aesthetic with 90° slats, to which you can integrate LED Ramp lights for a luxurious look.
  • Angled slats: the 55° slats provide a dynamic interaction of light and shade, perfect for this specific Starbucks outdoor seating ambiance.
  • Cantilever post: a unique pergola design, maximizing space and providing uninterrupted outdoor views.

Also, Starbucks’ aesthetic was represented by the color of the product. Black pergolas are a trending color in outdoor area designs due to their ability to seamlessly blend with the company’s image. Starbucks is known for its green and black colors, giving the brand a sense of elegance. A black pergola was the ideal option for the brand, achieving the desired classic and elegant look in combination with the fixed louvers. Our custom pergolas can match any brand’s aesthetic, are you ready to elevate yours?

Overcoming Design Challenges: Creating a Unique T-Shaped Roof

Bringing our client’s vision to life is Azenco Outdoor’s priority no matter the challenges, and this project was not the exception! The brand wanted a traditional-looking pergola without the usual rectangular roof and multiple posts.

A pergola of the size and look desired by the brand would require at least 6 posts, including the support posts in the middle of the structure. However, this was not an option for Starbucks. They wanted a pergola that would seamlessly blend with the outdoor space without disrupting their aesthetic and comfort of the customers.

Engineering Expertise on Display: The Design Solution and Specifications

To meet the brand’s expectations, Azenco Outdoor and their certified dealer in this area strategically designed a T-shaped roof layout. This custom design not only offers a non-traditional look but also helps with the flow of people in the Starbucks outdoor seating space.

When it comes to manufacturing a T-shaped roof, it meant that the design would have to be split into four different zones. To achieve this, the pergola’s structure included the following features:

  • 2 zones: 10′ x 15′
  • 2 zones: 10′ x 4.5′
  • 2 structural beams: 6”x 10”
  • 4 cantilever posts

Thanks to the 6”x 10” structural beams, Azenco Outdoor was able to support the 435 sq ft black pergola with only four cantilever posts instead of six. The combination of the structural beams and the cantilever posts offers the modern and minimalistic cutout look desired by Starbucks for its outdoor seating space.

Pergolatek’s incredible design was possible thanks to Azenco Outdoor’s manufacturing team. The custom pergola offered a personalized outdoor space that would make Starbucks stand out from competitors, which only comes to show our commitment to customer satisfaction. For us, nothing is impossible.
