For a 1930’s estate home in the Rosedale neighbourhood in downtown Toronto, we were tasked with coming up with a pergola that fit the space, offered privacy and shade in the sofa area. Have a peek at what we came up with! We also did a very unique trelliswork feature for the garden. This is not a completed project, just a concept rendering.
A Pergola Rendering with a Unique Trellis Feature for a Rosedale Residence
The right design for pergolas and trellises can be challenging for small yards with traditional Architecture. The design must flow with the surroundings. Scope; They want to feel more comfortable using the large sofa set at the head of the pool, and a unique trelliage feature possibly with a mirror should be visible from the couch, and the entire area should be attractive from the upper patio area. It should be a private yet inspired design that blends with the area.
We designed a pergola with retractable canvas canopy to give adjustable privacy and shelter the sofa area from prying eyes. They can choose the color, I suggested a pop of color there, something bold. It would also provide shade from the sun late in the afternoon. It has a unique trelliswork privacy screen that is a bit minimalist, we can get away with it as long as it is subtly colored. We then created a free-form trelliswork panel in the garden with angular sightlines from both patios. Both trellis panels contain a mirror to add depth and illusion to space.
