In wet weather, coastal winds would drive rain deep into the interior, due to high ceilings and a lack of built-in baffles. The installation of motorised awnings and vertical screens now let patrons stay in their seats even in heavy rain, by blocking water and extending the roofline where it falls short functionally.

Over the ‘satay’ carts, double-opening awnings shelter the stall operators from sun and rain, so they can keep grilling to feed customers in all weather conditions.
