Madrid, March 2018. In the middle of the Cantabrian Mountains, in a mansion situated at the heart of the region, a KANOPÉE advance bioclimatic pergola by KAWNEER, specialist in aluminium architectonic solutions, has just been installed.

This renewed solution is becoming a trend, especially in the North part of the country, as a state-of-the-art architectonic alternative. Whether for new or refurbish buildings, it allows the enjoyment of outdoor areas (gardens, patios, swimming pool area, etc) even when the weather doesn’t keep up. In this particular case, the KANOPÉE pergola has claimed a living space next to the swimming pool, thus creating an area to relax, read and get together.

This type of pergola is available in two versions, Compact and Premium, and both are fully adaptable according to the requirements of the space where it is to be installed.
The KANOPÉE Premium pergola by KAWNEER enables a projection of up to 7×4.5 metres, gaining surface and living space and it is adaptable to multiple configuration types: in an angle, against a façade, amongst three or four walls or as an independent structure, as it is in the case of Cantabria.

The Kanopée pergola has built-in gutter within the poles.

Its versatile and refine aesthetics, as well as the new motorise adjustable blades (with remote control) allow you to control the amount of solar energy received in whichever space it is installed, making it the ideal system for any living or private space project, as well as for hospitality industry. Besides, those blades can be chosen on a flat or curved design to better suit the aesthetics of the building.
