The owner of a water front boat villa was looking for an opening roof that could also be used as a vertical privacy and security screen. The Eclipse team designed, engineered and installed perhaps Australia’s first motor operable dual-purpose Eclipse Opening Roof/Security Screen System.
This was a large deck area leading out from a one room commercial/residential unit within walking distance from the centre of the city and the Darling Harbour precinct. The client wished to provide a breakout area that could was flexible enough to provide all weather protect summer or winter and yet complemented the building. As the client did not have existing plans and the are was relatively exposed to winds investigation had to be undertaken to ensure the attachment was structurally sound.
The site is on the waterfront on Sydney Harbour and the owners wanted to extend their entertaining area. They also stipulated the structure had to blend with the existing architecture.
