Poolside refuge creates year-round luxury getaway

Your favourite vacation spot can be as close as home.

It’s the place you retreat to at the end of a long day; a space for entertaining and relaxing with those you love, an area to lounge on a sunny afternoon, or curl up with your favourite book on a rainy day. 

Terra Summer Living Spaces bring elegance and functional luxury to your outdoor living area, creating the perfect atmosphere to relax into your own getaway — one you can enjoy year round.

Dura Louvered Pergola

The goal of this featured custom poolside project was to extend the liveable space of the home, creating an outdoor sanctuary that offers a reprieve from the sun and a refuge to rest, day or night. To ensure this space could offer an outdoor escape throughout the seasons, the structure was enhanced with features that allow guests to enjoy a spa-like atmosphere in any weather.

Louvered pergola with motorized screens

With an elegant black finish, the motorized Dura Louvered Pergola blends flawlessly into the architecture of the home. This minimal, modern structure is made from durable aluminum, making it resistant to wear in any climate and requiring little maintenance. The design of this high-end outdoor living space was entirely customized to ensure it aligned with the house’s black-panelled windows and carbon fencing for a clean and consistent motif.

The motorized swivelling blades on the pergola’s roof provide cover from sun or rain, adjustable at the touch of a button for partial or full shade, and complete rain protection. The blades can be positioned to offer natural ventilation in the heat of summer, or insulation in the heart of winter. Available in a variety of colours, the pergola acts as a contemporary backdrop, whether intended to blend in or stand out.

TerraSummer Dura Motorized Screens

This structure easily transforms from an open, airy shelter to a completely enclosed room, thanks to the technology of the Dura Motorized Screens — a fully automated system, operated by a wireless remote, to provide shade, wind and bug protection, as well as privacy on demand. 

Dura Motorized screen flush fit from the frame to ground

With high-quality installation ensuring a flush fit from frame to ground, the walls of the structure can lift or be drawn as needed throughout the day to protect from the elements.

Outdoor Living Dura Swing Door

The lockable Dura Swing Door, featured on this pergola, offers ease for guests coming and going, as well as added security. With elements made from high-grade aluminum and the most advanced screen technology, all Terra Summer products interchangeably fit together, allowing for unique combinations of doors and screens to build spaces that suit any environment.

outdoor tv

The functional style of this project is elevated even further by a custom-built, black-panelled feature wall with mounted TV. This luxury addition enables the area to effortlessly transform from a pool refuge to an open-lounge weekend sports party, or an intimate evening theatre.

TerraSummer Infratech Heater

To ensure seasonal warmth throughout the year, black-matte Infratech Slimline Quartz heaters were mounted discreetly along the upper frame, to provide the ultimate in adjustable comfort.

Backyard Staycation

As showcased in this project, each aspect of Terra Summer Living Spaces are custom created, with color, size and feature preferences in mind to make sure this high-end retreat becomes an extension of living space for your home. The result is a sophisticated oasis that opens new opportunities for your own luxury staycation, any time of year.
