Rhinegeist Roofdeck Bar + Trellis
The roof deck bar at Rhinegeist Brewery in the historic brewery district of Cincinnati Ohio. The design was conceived to actively frame the view of the hillside behind while enjoying drinks at the bar. The structure is made of weather resistant cedar, galvanized steel and twin wall polycarbonate roofing. The front columns express the structural forces acting on the trellis with extra support creating a fixed connection to the roof and a pin connection to the deck, they also evoke the feeling of two trees framing the bar.
