The coastal northeast isn’t exactly known for its pool weather, but that doesn’t mean taking a dip year-round has to be out of the question. Turkish company Libart has installed an innovative retractable wall system for a family with an outdoor pool in Brunswick, Maine. The sliding aluminum and glass structure can be extended out over the pool in inclement weather or completely open to enjoy sunny days. The flexible architectural system lets the owners not only enjoy their large pool and hot tub in cooler weather, but the glass enclosure allows for beautiful views through the trees leading out to Casco Bay. The large glass panels also flood the interior with natural light , making a dip in the covered pool in cold weather all that much sweeter.

The pool’s Evolution Freestanding system is referred to as “ modern architecture in motion” by the company thanks to its dynamic ability to create a multi-functional cover for the homeowners. + Libart

Large complexes such as shopping centers, hotels, conference centers aren’t exactly known for their energy-efficient design , but it doesn’t have to be that way. Working under the motto of “indoor comfort, outdoor freedom,” Turkish company Libart has created an innovative retractable ceiling system helps large spaces conserve energy use by letting in natural light and air circulation during good weather and shutting out the harsh weather – essentially converting the complex into an outdoor space at the touch of a button. Large shopping malls and retail complexes have typically been dark, cave-like spaces that don’t allow for much natural light. Libart’s flexible architectural system changes that by bringing natural elements into virtully any space, or according to the company. Large glass panels flood the interior with natural light and illuminate the space naturally, drastically reducing the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning. Perfect for a variety of uses, the attractive sliding glass structures can cover the interior during inclement weather or completely open to enjoy sunny days.
