Contemporary Kiwi Bach Features Locarno RLY200 Louvre Canopy

The detail and clean lines of this Leuschke-Khan designed louvre canopy complement the simple ply-and-batten cladding of a Pauanui bach.

By using a Locarno RLY200 louvre roof in this modern take on the Kiwi bach in Pauanui, Leuschke-Kahn architects achieved long spans in high wind without compromising design. The kitchen and dining area extends out to a generous deck in which the Locarno opening louvre roof provides an adaptable, functional outdoor living space, complementing the simple lines of the ply-and-batten cladding.

The recessed detail and fine profile of the steel PFC frame and posts offer a substantial but light aesthetic. Part of the RL200 louvre range which features rectilinear and symmetrical profiles, the RLY200 louvre profile allows for a 4100mm span in a high wind zone. As the stability of the RLY200 blade is achieved through the inner core design, the visible exterior features the same clean design principles as the popular alternative Locarno profiles.

A black anodised finish features a slightly raw and matt look, while providing appropriate protection for a sea spray zone.
