The client’s desire for an innovative inside/outside room was satisfied by this dual layer, retractable sliding roof in Sydney.
The internal roof provides a complete enclosure to form an indoor finish with weather seals. When sunlight is required, the ceiling slides back allowing natural light and warmth into the courtyard whilst providing protection from rain and wind. With the glass roof completely open, the courtyard is again re-established to the open air.
The system is fitted with rain sensors that automatically close the unit in the event of poor weather.
The operable roof system is all steel construction utilising high performance laminated glass with a self-cleaning coating.
TILT was commissioned to design, engineer and manufacture the operable roof.
