Pvilion, a small business specializing solar-powered fabric, is helping fellow Brooklyn-based business, Rooftop Reds, ring in the spring season with some solar-powered shade and power for visitors of the rooftop vineyard and wine bar.

Located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Rooftop Reds is the first of its kind and the only rooftop vineyard in New York City. With views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skyline, it’s a popular spot for guests to enjoy a glass of wine with a view. That’s not all they offer, though. They have a full roster of events that visitors can attend – including movie nights, wine tastings, vineyard tours, locally sourced meals, and much more.


Rooftop Reds needed shelter for guests and power for events, and being an environmentally conscious and forward-thinking company, they reached out to Pvilion for an all-in-one solution. Pvilion designed, fabricated, and installed a solar powered fabric awning that matches the rooftop vineyard and wine bar’s aesthetic, provides enough power for events, and adds plenty of shade for guests to gather and partake in the festivities, come rain or shine.

After closing for the winter, this spring will mark the ninth season that the 15,000 square ft vineyard has been open for business and serving the community with its nearly 200 grapevines.


“Being a small business ourselves, we love getting the opportunity to support other small businesses, especially local ones! Rooftop Reds have been our neighbors for the past 10 years, until our recent move to Industry City. It’s been great to see all the incredible events they’ve been able to use our canopy to power and shelter since we installed it a couple of years ago,” said Pvilion CEO, Colin Touhey.

Pvilion is pioneering a new way of thinking about sustainability, power, and shade in the hospitality and event space. In addition to this, they have worked on projects like the Miami Bandshell concert venue, canopies at New York Botanical Garden, a rooftop event tent for Carnegie Hall, and most recently, portable solar fabric kits for the Coldplay: Music of the Spheres World Tour.
