Retractable screens at The Ultimate Garage

Winner of Maserati and Architectural Digest magazine “Design Driven” Award

In 2009, Maserati shined a spotlight on the place where cars are parked through a nationwide call for entries in their Ultimate Garage competition. Holger Schubert, a renowned LA architect and car aficionado, took the challenge and designed his garage specifically for this competition. He was consequently awarded first place for existing garage category.

Schubert required a solution that enabled him to shade the sun and prevent the solar heat from entering the room. In addition, the entire screen had to remain completely hidden when not in use to preserve the architectural integrity of the building.

Phantom’s screens were the only ones that met all of Schubert’s requirements, as they provide solar protection while maintaining the look of the room. As the most efficient way to reduce solar heat gain in a building is to stop the heat before it enters the interior space, exterior shade systems are considered more effective than interior solar products. Phantom’s Executive motorized retractable screens were therefore mounted on the exterior of the windows to absorb and dissipate heat and glare before it reaches the glazing. The openness level of the mesh combined with the glare-absorbing darker shade helps to preserve the view to the outside and maintain a comfortable level of interior light.
