The design flexibility and construction of the Umbris louvre roof meant it was a perfect shading solution to maximise the outdoor living area, whilst keeping the contemporary design aesthetics and finish to the home.

Thanks to this solution we kept our view overlooking the farm land. Moreover, it seems as if the Umbris louvre roof was already foreseen in the design of our homes contemporary style. “Umbris was the only louvre roof system that could guarantee a ‘floating’ roof design”
