Standard Tap Steel Canopy

901 N 2nd Street

Northern Liberties, Philadelphia, PA

Status: Completed in January 2011

This project consists of a new roof canopy over an existing roof deck at the Standard Tap restaurant in the Northern Liberties.  The canopy affords 3-season dining within an open-air structure.  The design incorporates elements of the neighborhood’s mixed-use commercial history, drawing upon the tradition of local industrial-era iron structures.

The main structure is ornamental steel, with traditional hot-rivet joinery and a wood plank roof deck with copper roofing. Operable steel framed clerestory lights allow for day lighting and natural ventilation.  At the west, a green roof will cover the dining terrace.
