Two contrasting louvre roof systems were installed as part of a larger glazing package to this detached property in Dorney Reach. The aluminium roof allows the living space to be extended out onto the rear patio, with the overhead louvres providing easy solar shading and full protection from the rain when interlocked together. When the louvres are closed, rainwater drains down a hidden channel integrated within one of the supporting pillars for a minimal drainage solution.
Both roof fields are seamlessly connected to form one level unit to the front, while the right-hand section follows the shape of the house as it extends behind the newer rear extension. This second field has been finished with warm timber cladding over the welded aluminium core, adding a splash of colour to the monochrome palette used throughout the glazing and paintwork across the rear façade of the home.
IQ louvre roofs can be integrated with various wall systems to create additional levels of shading, whether it be glazed walls, vertical louvres to match the roof section, or even sliding or casement doors. For this project, a small section of vertical louvres was installed to one side of the patio to allow for further adjustable shading when the sun is at a lower angle in the sky. This louvre ‘wall’ was also finished in timber to provide an element of symmetry to the project design.
Each louvre roof system is designed completely bespoke for each individual project. With options for freestanding, cantilevered for floating corners and no maximum size, the IQ louvre roof is the ultimate solution for seamless indoor-outdoor living.
