Lagune: Shanghai, Pudong

RENSON Lagune enables drinks, Asian tapas and raw seafood at all times on the rooftop Flair Bar at Ritz-Carlton Hote

RENSON has installed a Lagune on the terrace of the Flair Bar on the 58th floor of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Shanghai, Pudong. This terrace cover enables the customers of the highest rooftop bar in China to have a drink or to eat Asian tapas and raw seafood ‘alfresco’, without having to think about sun, rain, wind, or coldness. This Flair Bar is a popular destination, providing stunning views of Shanghai, Puxi.

Due to the coldness, however, the bar was not able to open its terrace during autumn, winter, or spring. The management of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Shanghai was looking for a solution that would allow them to use the terrace during all weather conditions and to serve more people at one time. 

“With the Lagune we proposed a stylish terrace cover, based on a patented aluminium construction and a roof structure which uses innovative wind-tight, watertight, light-penetrating sun screens that can be opened or closed, depending on the weather”, says Rick Heintjes, Sales Manager Asia at RENSON. “This sun-shading solution uses the ingenious Fixscreen-technology combined with an unrivalled fabric tension, making the screen wind-resistant in every position. Thanks to this technology, rain falling on the fabric simply drains away through concealed guide water channels. Even when the fabric is not fully extended, any rainwater is drained away.”

“Our rooftop restaurant Flair has been using the Lagune terrace cover for a couple of months now and we are very content. This extra outdoor space offers our customers protection against sun, wind, and rain without losing contact with the environment. In summertime, both the roof screen and the glass sliding panels can be opened, offering people an open view over the skyline of Shanghai, Puxi,” says Rainer Burkle, general manager for Ritz-Carlton in China. “We are not surprised that properties developer Sun Hung Kai picked up on the idea for another project within the IFC mall. Recently, we presented
the general managers of the other Ritz-Carlton Hotels in China with this solution, which can offer them extra business and offer their customers extra comfort.”
