Requiring more usable areas around the home, this family of four decided to proceed with Modiform’s design because it enhanced the aesthetic and functional areas surrounding of their unused outdoor space’s.
The clients were experiencing direct sunlight and leaf litter over the pool, rendering it primarily unusable eight months of the year. For this reason, Modiform crafted a custom shade structure that covers 80% of the pool.
In addition, their children’s two vehicles were exposed in the driveway and needed coverage to protect the kid’s vehicles. Overlapping sails were opted for as an excellent solution for both the functional coverage and the interesting design opportunities they can create.
The street presence was an essential element to the owners’ requirements, and so an overlapping variety of sails at different heights and positions was crafted to create an architectural aesthetic for this Wavell Heights home so as not to impede on their recent landscaping upgrade.
The structural shade solution has been fixed with various high strength, non-corrosive, marine-grade stainless steel fittings to the roof, fascia, slab and garden bed. The sails are also fastened with the highest grade 315 stainless steel custom swage cables to last for the duration of their sturdy powder coated columns.
Modiform’s designers, installers and project facilitators were proud to work together with this great family to produce a beautiful, functional shade solution to the surrounds of their home where they can now spend more time in their new outdoor living spaces.
