Roofing panels from ASKIN Performance Panels were installed on the Oceans 27 and Shores Café in Perth to create a spectacular roofline as envisioned by the owner.

Located along the picturesque Alkimos coastline in Perth, Oceans 27 Cafe recently completed a rebuild designed by Morley Davis Architects. The open style venue caters for families including their pets, with live music and DJs playing most weekends.

For the restaurant’s redevelopment, owner George Bartell sought to create an open venue that would offer a relaxed dining experience for the whole family. He wanted a space where his guests could sit inside the restaurant and eat for an hour, or relax for 3-4 hours and watch the sunset.

“Using ASKIN’s long spans of roofing panel opens the restaurant up, to allow for that indoor-outdoor feel, and during the summertime, it really keeps it cooler,” says Bartell.

“We’ve got one of the best sunsets here at Oceans 27,” he added.

ASKIN’s scope of work for the project included specification, design and drafting, and engineering.

ASKIN marketing and development manager, Adam Shannon said, “The location is amazing, the café looks spectacular, and the food is delicious. I can see why George is already considering an extension. This place ticks all the boxes.”

Though Oceans 27 currently seats 300 people, Bartell is exploring extensions including a new bar area, based on positive feedback from patrons who have been travelling from all over the country. He will also be calling ASKIN to help build a bigger cool room.

ASKIN Metric roofing was specified for the roof with an exposed internal ceiling. ASKIN Interior cool room panel was specified for the internal kitchen cool rooms.

The architect chose ASKIN products not only for the assurance of support but also for the thermal, fire and aesthetic performance of the EPS-FR panels.
