An Umbris patio roof was used in this contemporary home renovation to extend living spaces further into the garden. The automated louvre roof sits over the large patio area jointly supported by the building, leg posts and the boundary wall.
With only two vertical supporting columns, the large louvre roof covers a great span providing a contemporary minimal design to the patio and a great architectural design finish to the property. The Umbris Louvre Roofs can have up to 7m between supporting posts to create these expansive lengths with little interruption in views.
The integrated drainage system of the louvre roof enables the rainwater collected by the aluminium louvres which is drained to the roof profile and through to the support legs. The clients here opted for additional drainage within their patio enabling the excess water to drain through to a permeable soak away made of pebbles.
Indoor-outdoor living is becoming increasingly popular, especially with a large glass façade to the rear of the house. The external living space added to this home with the help of an Umbris louvre roof will add a sense of space to the internal living areas.
The Umbris louvre roof also provides controllable shading to the outdoor living area and rear elevation of glass. In addition it provides a place to entertain and enjoy all year round, the automated louvres create a watertight roof when closed perfect for all weathers meaning no more BBQ washouts!
Spot lighting was integrated into the Umbris roof profile for more usage. Lighting allows the outdoor space to be used all through the night, especially if it is a dark overcast evening the dining space can still be used and enjoyed.
