Greenwich awnings and RIB canopies at Hovarda

11 Jan 2018

These stunning turquoise Greenwich awnings  at the Hovarda Bar and Restaurant in Greenwich are complimented by neat little bespoke RIB canopies at the upper level which make this building distinctive and set it apart from the neighbours. The Greenwich awning is a modern take on a traditional look with the advantage that the awning can be operated either manually via a gearbox or electrically using wireless remote controls.  The simplicity of the design means that the awning is robust yet the careful use of materials prevents the more cumbersome look of some other pivoting awnings.

Hovarda is a bar and restaurant inspired by the flavours of the Aegean sea. The bar serves cocktails and wines alongside live music and DJs, with enough space to cater for 70 persons in comfort. It has an open kitchen which is integrated within the main dining area. Hovarda maintains a laid-back vibe in the afternoon, before the in-house DJ takes control in the evening to liven things up. The bar hosts DJs from around the world and is open 7 days a week until 1am each night, with live music on Sundays; a really popular lively spot in London.

Rupert Court and Rupert Street are named after Prince Rupert of the Rhine, noted 17th century general and son of Elizabeth Stuart, daughter of King James I; he was First Lord of the Admiralty when this street was built in 1676. Today Rupert  Street borders Chinatown which used to be in the Limehouse region of East London, however, this was pretty much destroyed in the Blitz and has been steadily rebuilt in Soho since the 1970s.
