"In our designs, we always reference the connection between the indoors and outdoors. The copper Parasoleil panels create the perfect connection between the two...using this material as a way to introduce art and texture bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor! The organic pattern welcomes the bright sunshine, while allowing ventilation...and the shadow created by the pattern is perfection! "

Kim Lewis Tiny House “Mid-Century Marfa”

Challenge

When you have such a small structure to work with, making a design statement isn’t always easy. This is the challenge faced by Kim Lewis, Lead Designer of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” when she designs Tiny Homes. By definition a Tiny Home is anything under 500 square-feet. Parasoleil partnered with Kim Lewis to provide panels for her “Mid-Century Marfa” Tiny Home, designed for FYI’s “Tiny Homes Nation”. The Mid-Century Marfa project was a 380-sqft home built on two gooseneck trailers, featuring built-in hammocks, a removable deck, screened-in porch using Parasoleil panels, and plenty of color for pop.

Solution

Parasoleil panels were used to screen in the porch, the bathroom, and as part of the front door. Using copper panels in small segments both on the interior and exterior of the project gave the design a consistent feel with a rich, natural material. The natural copper complemented Kim’s design scheme while the Flanigan pattern was a perfect transitional pattern to provide privacy when used for screening.
