A private residence on Lazio’s coastline to a Mediterranean oasis with KE

The client’s request was to replace the 4 shades previously installed, in galvanized iron, whose cloth was damaged due to the wind.


Considering the seafront location of its own residence, the purchaser was oriented towards a product whose resistance was higher than the previous ones, considering both the strong wind gusts, which are typical of the coastline, and the corrosion due to saltiness.


The technical project manager, Mr. Simone Fantin from KE retailer Progetto Ombra in Latina, chose the bioclimatic pergola Kedry Prime: an aluminium structure with louvered roof, in order to satisfy all technical features needed, with a wind resistance class equal to 6, according to UNI EN 13561.


Appreciated for its minimal design, KEDRY PRIME can fit to any outdoor space, due to its clean aesthetic, reduced height and a LED light kit integrated into the perimeter, that makes it highly customizable.


In addition to this, the greatest comfort is granted by a perfect automation: the user can manage Kedry Prime via smartphone and tablet apps from remote, defining settings and opening/closing times.


As far as the house patio is concerned, the owner has chosen QUBICA Plumb cassette awning, in the matt white monochromatic version: the squared box matches perfectly with the house architecture and, at the same time, it protects the fabric from corrosion and weathering. QUBICA Plumb, from an idea of Italian Architect Robby Cantarutti, fits perfectly with the clean aesthetic of the building, as an element of minimum impact, always beautiful even when closed.


Attention to the details, innovative materials, appealing design are all elements that, along with the numerous possibilities offered by the wide range of KE solutions, contributed to create a unique home.
