Maximised Outdoor Living in Mount Eden

The way in which a home connects to the outdoors, its sun and privacy controls, and of course its design, are integral features to be considered when designing a new home or renovation. The addition of a Louvretec Opening Roof to a deck or outdoor area opens a home to the outdoors providing a functional outdoor living area, letting the homeowner set and control shade requirements as required.

A recently completed renovation in Mount Eden featuring two bays of Louvretec Opening Roofs and motorised mesh shade blinds has created a functional and well used additional living space for the homeowners to enjoy. The outdoor room has become the new favourite room where impromptu family gatherings regularly occur or a sheltered outside space for kids to play.

“The home now flows from room to room; we find ourselves gravitating to the outdoor room which also beckons the kids out onto the lawn," say the homeowners. "The backyard is now easy to access and utilised to its full potential.” The Opening Roofs not only create an ideal, additional space to the home but also provide a link to the previously unused lawn area.

Motorised mesh shade blinds complement the Opening Roofs letting the homeowners further set and control conditions. “The sun is now easily kept out of the living and kitchen areas as required; feet are no longer scorched on the hot deck and weekend alfresco lunches flow well into evening."

Louvretec Opening roofs are adaptable to any building style, either as part of a bold new build or a subtle renovation integrated into something more traditional. Custom built to any size and style, Louvretec roofs can be integrated with home automation systems, to provide protection from the elements automatically. Louvretec can also combine outdoor lighting and heating with the opening roof.

Closing in the sides of your Opening Roof with the addition of sun louvre shutters, outdoor blinds or sliding glass doors all designed to fit seamlessly with a Louvretec Opening Roof creates a functional outdoor space providing welcomed shade, space and flow. Effectively allowing the homeowner to control the climate.

Louvretec’s fully engineered range of eight Opening Roofs are customised to each project's precise requirements and will create more space in a home — a perfect solution to enhance your clients' outdoor living areas, regardless of whether the home is an apartment, townhouse, bungalow or contemporary new build. All Louvretec products are available nationwide.
