Transforming this Melbourne home into one with an uncompromised minimalistic scheme while producing functional shade design was the challenge. This home in the Melbourne suburbs was experiencing serious heat overload both internally and outdoors in the backyard entertainment area. That was until they had the Helioscreen All Seasons Design HS10 twin field Retractable Roof and HM80 SS external blinds installed. The addition of the Retractable Roof with LED lighting created a usable outdoor space all year round and allowed them to be outdoors both day and night.
By installing eight external blinds, the occupants were able to cut the light and heat from entering the home and thus stopping the overheating of the interior of the house. This light control in turn helps to reduce the cost of cooling the home in summer.
Both systems are motorised with Somfy motors, creating ease of operation.
When it came to the roof and the external screens, both these design elements allow for a modern and functional looking addition to the home’s existing design.
Choosing products such as the Helioscreen All Seasons Retractable Roof and the Helioscreen External blinds, has created a much more liveable home and outdoor space when facing all elements of Melbourne’s changeable weather.
