What Houzz contributors are saying:

“The added benefit of this design, because of its scale, is that it also transforms the pool area into a spatially exciting new space," Ehrlich explains. "The fact that the shades can move also means that there are multiple options of not only sun control but of spatial quality."
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Treatments for Large or Oddly Shaped Windows
Exterior: No one ever said that shades have to be on the inside. The panels on this Los Angeles home roll neatly and inconspicuously away. They provide privacy and light control simultaneously for two floors. In addition, the effect of wind can add stimulating movement to the architecture, taking the expression of its design to another level.While this house was originally designed to accommodate these shades, you may have a porch outside of a room that needs protection. Consider placing something on the exterior of the perimeter of the porch to create a solution. Of course, it must be determined how much wind a shade can withstand before determining if this is a good idea in your area.
