Custom designed aluminum motorized retractable roofs can be applied to any superstructure, at any scale. We work with architects to develop a solution to meet their vision. The infill material into the aluminum framing (glass, polycarbonate, ETFE, photovoltaic panels) and their performance are specified by the architectural team. 

In this instance, OpenAire provided both the enclsoure and the retractable roof and vertical facades. A single slope or lean-to shape is one of many solutions for the superstructure. This is a bi-part operable solution where the roof slides left and right from the middle of the slope. Once open, the motorized roof (moving panels) are parked  on top of the fixed panels at the perimeter edges. This is a 50% open solution.
