Calvi is a small village, famous for its medieval citadel, located in the area of the Upper Corsica. Calvi’s surroundings are known as Balagne, a luxuriant region also called “Corsica’s garden”.
Tiny villages, wonderful beaches and mountains in the background: Calvi is an exclusive tourist destination in which many prestigious summer residences can be found. Right in one of these villas, called Villa Corba, a customised project featuring Gennius A2 Compact pergola was designed.
The villa’s outdoor area, that overlooks a swimming pool and the sea, needed a proper covering, able to give shelter and leave no obstruction to the breath-taking view.
With KE Store Baches Diffusion Balagne’s advice, along with the collaboration of KE’s Technical Office, a special customised structure was designed by reinforcing the front part of a Gennius A2 Compact pergola, one of the classic models of the Gennius pergolas range.
This special pergola boasts a 9-metre width standing only on two pillars. The covering is produced with a Serge Ferrari 602 Blackout fabric, which does not allow the light filtering. It was chosen a double roof designed with another Gennius model, Giotto Compact, an awning installed on the roof, perfect to optimise the terrace’s and indoors’ brightness.
The structure’s double cover has the purpose of regulating natural lighting and enhancing its appearance, while keeping aligned with the terrace’s decorative style.
The main covering is waterproof, even if it is installed horizontally. Actually, a special “non-tensioned” fabric was used in order to drain rainwater on both sides.
The achieved result is a perfect example of KE’s ability to design customised structures, in order to meet even the most demanding requirements.
