Pada contoh diatas adalah sebuah desain rumah yang dibuat oleh astudio, pemiliknya menyukai gaya rumah yang ‘rustic’ dengan dinding bata tanpa plester dan beton ekspos. Dalam desain ini kami membuat desain pergola diatas awning biasa, dimana frame menggunakan besi hollow dan diberi kawat ayam/ram sebagai media rambatan.
The example above is a house design created by astudio, the home owners love the style of a ‘rustic’ house with a brick wall without plaster and with exposed concrete. In this design, we create a pergola above ordinary awnings, we can use hollow steel frames provided with wire mesh as a medium of propagation.
