Designed by architect Selin Maner, the Babylon Beach Club - housing the Monk Restaurant - is a year round restaurant and concert venue. To solve the challenge of seasonally changing size requirements, the design team devised a glass greenhouse extension on a rolling track; this creates additional indoor seating space for the winter but allows the space to remain outdoor for the summer.
Selin Maner commented, “Sustainability, durability and affordability were key factors in this project; Kebony was able to meet this criteria. Also, as the buildings are on the seafront, we loved the fact that Kebony weathers beautifully. We hope to set a positive example that there are sustainable and affordable alternatives to using tropical hardwood.”
