The Retractable Roof Pergola creates a shady setting for entertaining and outdoor dining on a porch or patio or in a yard. The smooth-moving retractable top lets you control the sun and shade and offers shelter from a passing shower.
The Bamboo House is the first architect-designed and certified passive house in France, with a design incorporating numerous innovations.
