design and automated function of Pergolaire louvered opening roof patios bring
fashion centred ingenuity to how we live outdoors. For this home setting the
design needed to bring architectural definition to the home in a way that would
accentuate the waterside aspect.
The result was to craft a structure of two separate roof styles with the gable roof channeling the pool and canal vistas while providing an architectural spine for the flat roof elements to spread laterally giving full coverage and sectional climate control over the dining, lounging and cooking areas.
"What we’ve noticed is that we can enjoy the warmth of the sun in winter and during hot summer days can easily crack open the louvres to let in some breeze and it just makes an immediate drop in the temperature."
Michael and Nadine, Runaway Bay
