Designing Your Energy-Efficient Residential Oasis

A contemporary remodel for an Ontario home.

OpenAire designed, installed and manufactured a retractable roof for this residential home. The homeowners requested a 2000 sq ft addition with a lap pool, chill pool, stand-up hot spa, steam room, and underground mechanical bunker.  Their only manufacturer request; is to keep their current energy costs the same.

The owners brought in Poolscape who partnered with OpenAire to bring their architectural visions to life. The resulting enclosure is 58 ft long  x 32 ft wide,and is separated from the house with a  23’ long x 7 ft wide enclosed walkway.  Further, the enclosure features 12 operable roof panels with insect screens and 12 sliding patio doors.  One of the gable ends opens up to the outdoors, the other houses a TV and fireplace.

Openaire’s forward-thinking design capitalizes on the architectural trend of inside-out living.  These designs are functional yet beautiful.  Homeowners can now effortlessly enjoy nature in the comfort of their sun-soaked enclosure and feel proud of their new energy-efficient structure.
