Modern Pergola project masterplan design in Kitchener, Ontario

Project Features

  • Existing grades created a unique opportunity for multiple elevated terraces and garden rooms
  • Low natural stone walls helped define space and acts as additional seating
  • Decorative privacy screens were assembled with perforated steel sheets and painted PVC creating a backdrop to the primary lounge
  • A linear fire burner was placed in a central location to be visible from all areas of the yard
  • Open pergola with architectural columns provides vertical definition and reduced the scale of house
  • Simple plant pallet was used to offer a vegetative screen with lighting integrated into the pergola to provide ambience and wayfinding
