A challenge in modern architecture is to connect to nature through design and structure. What better way to do this than to add a deck and fashionable pergola to an outdoor space, taking the interior of a home and the beauty of the natural landscape to the next level.

Pergolas are outdoor, overhead structures that are constructed using vertical posts or pillars, crossbeams, and rafters. They are rarely enclosed but still provide shade and protection from natural elements. Add this structure to decking and it becomes an appealing centre for entertainment, enjoyment and an asset that boosts a property’s value.
