The pleasure of open-air comfort; pavilions, gazebos, shade systems
EVERYTHING FOR THE OPEN-AIR HOME
Our gazebos, pavilions, the pavilion musique and pergolas are made using thin iron structures, designed and hand-crafted by us to enhance the lightness and momentum of the construction and guarantee your enjoyment of our ‘Made in Italy’ style A clever use of shading systems (anti-mould and anti-UV curtains and fabrics) can be used in the gazebos, the pavilion musique and pergolas to create comfortable areas during the summer. In the coverless version, they redesign and enhance spaces in gardens and large terraces. The roofs of the gazebos, pavilions and pergolas can be both fixed and removable, as can the simpler shading systems. L’Officina dei Giardini produces pavilions with retractable bellow curtains that can be opened and closed when necessary.
Introduce artistry to the original structure; windows, canopies, glass entrance cubicles
SKILFULLY REINVENTING THE ORIGINAL
Designing an orangery means making the most of the potential offered by existing buildings: close in a porch, renovate a barn or stables, add a window, embellish a facade or an entrance with a glass entrance cubicle or canopy, build a topia or an orangery. A timely restoration project, insulated by l’Officina dei Giardini will bring to life new spaces full of new possibilities. An orangery can be the form best suited to complete existing construction work, and can be placed in a courtyard, in a garden or on a terrace. Roofs can be simple, square, transparent, closed (hot or ventilated) or with a skylight, decorated with gables, curved in multiple layers, covered with double interlocking systems (used to conserve monuments), and made of zinc, copper or other metals.The orangery can be coloured according to the RAL table. The windows that close the existing structures can be transparent, decorated, frosted, or alternatively choose stained glass or leadlight glass windows. Our specially developed ‘OdG Evolution’ thermal break, iron profiles combine high thermal performance with the pleasing aesthetics of profiles used in the construction of nineteenth century conservatories. Once completed, the construction will blend with the original building harmoniously, thus adding a new source of value.
