Ceili’s Rooftop



  • Ceili


  • Calgary, Alberta

The Ask

  • With Calgary’s extreme climate and short patio season, Sprung was approached to provide a year-round solution from the elements while still maintaining a vibrant outdoor atmosphere.
  • Adding to the challenge, the install was to take place on top of a downtown Calgary rooftop, during winter, meaning the installation team would be battling intense winds and heavy snow.

How Sprung Delivered

  • Sprung worked with The Rooftop team and their partners to design and install a modern, bright and customized facility.
  • The open concept design provides concert-level acoustics for events, and the natural daylight panels compliment the vast greenery that simulates an outdoor space — all while being protected from the elements.

Calgary is known for its extreme weather shifts and our goal was to design a structure to provide a light, bright, clear span space, open to the air but with enough coverage to provide a unique, fun, and functional space for more than just “summer” – but rather upwards of 8 to 10 months per year. We have proudly dubbed the finished product, “The World’s Largest Umbrella.”

There is no question that the Sprung team held true to their reputation of being innovative, fast, and cost-effective. While continuously working with our design team and theirs, we created an aluminum framed membrane structure on the rooftop of a Calgary building what will be enjoyed in the spring, summer, fall, and even winter.”
