I vote no sprinklers required -- open and noncombustible- the rockinghorse on a spring is like a newspaper machine - there will always be just one of them- not one today and twelve tomorrow.

Assuming there’s play equipment there (fire load) and knowing that there are kids occupying the space, I wouldn’t call this an “exterior projection”. It’s a shad structure with occupancy below and IMO requires sprinkler protection.

Protecting a light hazard Boys and Girls Club. I excluded an exterior, but covered, attached and open play area. Non-combustible. It’s a couple thousand square feet. I excluded using NFPA 13 2013 8.15.7

Client is telling me that he her other fire sprinkler guys telling him he needs sprinklers in that areas.
