Restaurant Barrier: Winterized Seating

Constructed entirely from a flatpack plywood kit, this enclosed dining area can be adapted for outdoor winter dining with a few modifications. The plywood components can be put together on site and allow for extensive customization once assembled. In colder months, heating can be installed along with vinyl or polycarbonate sheets that fully enclose the frame.
