Modern Luxury + High Performance = The 2014 New American Home (BUILDER Magazine)

Modern Luxury + High Performance = The 2014 New American Home (BUILDER Magazine) | Retractable screens for your home | Scoop.it
Kristina Kinakin's insight:

The New American Home (TNAH) is constructed annually as a centerpiece for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders' Show, giving building industry professionals an opportunity to see design trends, construction techniques, and materials that can be used in any new or remodeled home.

 

Retractable motorized screens were needed to create an indoor/outdoor living space that would help the homeowners enjoy the home to the fullest and expand the total usable square footage of the house.

 

The design team selected Phantom’s retractable screens with a solar mesh in charcoal finish which features a sun control factor of 90% and openness of 10%. The screens help significantly reduce the exposure to UV rays and block hot air from entering the home, plus control the temperature of the area where the screens are used. By recessing the components, the ten screens remain completely out of sight when not needed, uniting the indoor and outdoor spaces in a creative way. Powered by Somfy®, Phantom’s motorized screens are fully integrated into the home’s automation system, making it easy to program the screens to operate automatically whenever needed.

Kristina Kinakin's insight:

When planning to screen a larger outdoor living area such as a porch or a patio, a DIY project may be quite overwhelming. Sourcing a professional to help with the installation may be the best way to go. Also, it is important to understand the specifics such as static vs retractable screens, etc. before tackling the screening project!
