MODERN STEEL AND WOOD PERGOLA

DESIGN: TKO STRUCTURE

LOCATION: LAUREL CANYON

The idea for this pergola came from a picture our client's sent to us in an email. They wanted a similar design to help shade and define a sun drenched area on their hillside-canyon home.

 

But first, we had to translate a photograph into a workable set of shop drawings- complete with accurate dimensions, proportional relationships to adjoining members and a sequencing list of final assemblies. Made from tube steel; the frame for the pergola was welded and then powder-coated at an off-site facility before it was re-assembled on location. We then added support footings and then the clear redwood rafters that made up the canopy infill, before adding down-flood lights.
