A terrace shelter on the roofs of Paris

24 September 2019

Enhancing the view from a Paris apartment with a retractable veranda was the aim of a project carried out in collaboration with Homabris and Verandair. Enjoying a terrace in a Paris apartment overlooking the City of Light is a true luxury. But having this pleasure all year round thanks to a bioclimatic terrace enclosure is even better.

In the heart of the City of Light, in the 13th arrondissement, a terrace shelter has been installed on the terrace of an apartment building to create a brand new, convivial living space. For this exceptional construction, a retractable veranda enhances the terrace of the owners of a Paris apartment. Brightness, space and living comfort are the hallmarks of this beautiful project.

Features of a veranda on an apartment terrace

This installation, which accentuates the building’s façade, is not a trivial construction and required a few additional verification parameters. This installation called for greater vigilance with regard to the veranda’s resistance to wind, as the veranda is placed high up, and is therefore more exposed to wind and different weather conditions. A veranda on the terrace of an apartment building also requires permission from the co-ownership .
