Experience feedback: A summer under a Biossun pergola in Draillant (74)
3 February 2018
Nadine lives in a beautiful setting nestled in the heart of the Alps. A superb contemporary house with a mirror pool, a refined garden ... And since a few months, a new pergola Biossun ...
Tell us your desire for a new bioclimatic pergola ...
"Our pool area is south facing: it is very pleasant, but also sometimes suffocating. To take full advantage, we wanted to bring him a shaded area, while having a good air circulation. We already had sunshade bays installed, but they were not enough. Naturally, we thought about the well-being that could bring us a second bioclimatic Biossun pergola. Yes, a second, because two years ago, we already had one installed, wall-mounted to the house. It houses our dining area and we are absolutely delighted: it is a perfectly comfortable place where we feel good in all seasons. The idea of setting up a second Biossun pergola by the pool was quickly imposed on us. We wanted it to blend with the swaying sun breezes already in place and echo our first Biossun "dining area" pergola."
Which Biossun pergola did you choose?
"We opted for a BIO 230 pergola that was installed last summer. We were very well advised and accompanied in our project by our installer (Sunlife By Game) who perfectly understood our needs and our desires. It measures approximately 20m2, it is a corner voluntarily very cocooning around the pool that are rather spacious! We chose it matt anthracite gray. It is therefore perfectly matched to the swaying sun breezes that were already in place. We opted for flat slats of a slightly lighter gray than the pergola. The ratio of the two tones is subtle and very design. The whole is sober and elegant, in perfect harmony with our first pergola. It is equipped with directional spotlights and LED strips. The spots are used to modulate the light and the light strips provide lighting that highlights the purity of the lines of the pergola. These lighting possibilities invite us to enjoy the pool area late at night and create different atmospheres according to the mood of the evening! "
What pleasures do you derive from this new installation?
"First of all, the pool area has become very pleasant. We are finally protected from the sun, while having a natural ventilation. As a result, we enjoy more of the pool. We stay longer around to discuss, dream, contemplate the landscape ... In short, to relax! Second appreciable point: the aesthetics. A few years ago, when we had our old swimming pool refurbished for a mirror pool, we wanted to give the outside a very contemporary character, in a very clean style. The Biossun pergola situated near the pool, like the one housing our dining area, structure the space in a very architectural way. For us, it's perfectly successful."
