Socialising outdoors shouldn’t stop when the weather changes

An outdoor space, such as a kitchen, equipped with all the mod cons to make the most of your garden, patio, terrace, or balcony, is an essential for enjoying some downtime and communing with nature. But what happens when rain falls and temperatures drop? The first aspects to consider when designing an outdoor space are functionality and convenience. A patio cover plays an important part in this. To determine the ideal spot for your kitchen, there are several things you need to consider. Where will you sit to eat, does this area need to be protected from sun or evening fog, and where will you cook? Does the cooking area need a cover too? Is there adequate ventilation, are there no flammable plantings nearby? Pergolas with orientable blades or canvas, and sun sails - which take their inspiration from the nautical world - provide excellent protection from sun, wind, and rain. Italian company Corradi has combined elements of nature, advanced technologies and design in all its solutions, including its patented Pergotenda®, an extremely flexible covering system to make outdoor spaces comfortable for many months out of the year.

This solution is ideal if you’re looking for a minimalist, elegant canopy that is also ductile. Pergotenda® outdoor covers can be configured as wall-mounted or freestanding structures, with a flat or inclined roof, open or closed on sides, full optional solutions that can be customised and made to measure for residential, commercial, and public projects.

For example for this private home in the province of Bologna (Italy). The house is completely immersed in its natural surroundings, and was built according to the latest guidelines of sustainable construction.
The colours of the wooden cladding contrast beautifully with the building’s modern, linear design.

Pergotenda®Exyl provides shade, elevating the outdoor space with its no-frills design and lightweight structure. It’s a great example of simple yet distinctive architecture that has been seamlessly incorporated into the lush vegetation. When perfection is achieved, there is nothing more to add.
