The installation of a Bask Outdoor Living System has given this Auckland property the ability to adjust and control light and shade for its stunning outdoor living area. The homeowners wanted to create an area that would be conducive to relaxation and entertainment while taking a young family dynamic into consideration. With the mission brief being the promotion of outdoor living, Louvre Roof Concepts, one of Bask Outdoor Living’s network of installers was engaged to make this project reality.
Well-versed with capricious Auckland weather, it was clear to the owners that an opening roof system that was able to regulate sunlight and shade, yet also provide shelter from inclement weather was the ideal solution and as a result choose the Bask Outdoor Living system with its flexibility of operation and in meeting the requirements of their home. The wall mounted Bask Outdoor Living System that is shown here is an opening louvre roof system that enables the ability to control the amount of sun, light, airflow, and shade that has ensured a stunning and versatile outdoor space able to be enjoyed year-round.
Working closely with Assemble Architects who detailed the design, the installation of the system was straightforward thanks to the team at Louvre Roof Concepts. The powder-coated finish of the aluminium components has achieved a cohesive look with the home’s joinery and weatherboard cladding. The homeowners appreciate the practicality of the wall mounted Bask system, which with its integrated drainage is a practical and cleaner look. “We like the fact the roof is self-draining. When it’s closed, it’s effectively watertight, and any water flows off the roof to the downpipes which are concealed within the posts.”
The ability to enjoy their new outdoor living area no matter the weather has had immediate benefits. “We really love how we can create shade in hot weather, shelter in winter, and open up the louvres to let light in whenever we want. It’s like adding an extension to the house.” Ultimately, the addition of the Bask Outdoor Living System has resulted in a tranquil backyard oasis somewhere the family can rest, relax, or entertain year-round.
