We LOVE a good pergola at VRA and include them wherever we can. A pergola is a transition space between the outside and the inside—providing shade, filtered sunshine and sometimes rain cover.
A good pergola can add another room to a building. It connects the building to the outside and can break down a monolithic wall. A well designed pergola will add texture to the exterior of your home and improve the overall aesthetic.
A pergola can be reminiscent of rural sheds with their lean-to’s and home built add-ons lending a New Zealand aesthetic to a building. It is important to detail a pergola correctly, badly designed pergolas look cheap and temporary. The design is definitely in the detail.
