Ask any random person to imagine a gazebo and you will get different answers. This is because the gazebo comes in all shapes and sizes. It can be long, round, square, freestanding or attached to a garden wall. Ask any random person and they will also tell you that installing a gazebo in your home adds a touch of class and fun to your backyard. This is because the gazebo serves as a multipurpose spot to conduct all kinds of activities from functioning as a quiet spot to read your favourite book to being the rendezvous point where you throw your barbecue parties. Of course, a well-chosen gazebo can also add a touch of romance and beautify your home as well.

In warm and sunny climates, gazebos come in plenty of categories from pagodas to pavilions and kiosks to belvederes. Here at Supercool Creative Culture Sdn Bhd, the team provides its customers with the option of installing a charming Balinese Gazebo in their homes.

With brown and honey coloured hues, the Balinese Gazebo for each home will be different as the specifications of the gazebo depends on the customer’s current house. This means that the designers at Supercool Creative Culture will exclusively design and build the Balinese Gazebo according to your preference and style. This means that customers will never have nightmares about having a giant gazebo in a pocket garden or having a tiny gazebo is a spacious garden. Buyers on a budget can also rest assured that the gazebo is reasonably priced.

Generally, a gazebo can either be an open or closed type. Closed gazebos are usually identified by walls and doors in its construction. The Balinese Gazebo however is an open type that is heldd up by columns similar to those stemming from Japanese garden landscaping designs. Another common element between the Balinese and Japanese garden landscaping design is that both design concepts are based on the intention of incorporating nature into their home, and therefore natural materials such as solid local wood is used to build the gazebo. Open gazebos are usually adorned with landscaping as well so visitors can sit in the gazebo and appreciate the beauty of your outdoor home.

The open concept is also idle not only for those who like to lounge outside while admiring the outdoors, but it is also a great place to enjoy fresh wind while being surrounded by nature. Having a gazebo is also great for those who would like a change from their home and yearn for a private space to read or meditate. A gazebo also functions as great place to gather family and guests, rather than squeezing everyone in the dining room.

For added beautification purposes, the gazebo is usually surrounded by low bushes and plants. A Balinese Gazebo would also look idyllic if it is constructed under an old towering tree that will further increase the cooling effect of the gazebo. If you are a home owner with a taste for water features such as a koi pond or a waterfall, situating your Balinese gazebo not only calms you, but it would also be a great place to find Zen-like inner peace.

An open concept gazebo such as the Balinese Gazebo also does great as a place to house potted plants that do not require as much sunlight, such as orchids. Due to the harsh weathers in Malaysia that rotate between heavy downpour and scorching hot temperatures, the Balinese Gazebo is intentionally constructed with either Chengal, Balau or Resak hardwood that has also been surface treated to ensure structural integrity.

While you are in the midst of ordering your very own Balinese Gazebo, may we suggest that you also have a look at Supercool’s pergola collection as these two furnishings would greatly complement each other.

September Product Highlight : Pergola

4

Posted by supercool | Posted in Product Highlights | Posted on 31-08-2010

For the product feature this month, we’ve chosen to highlight the awesomeness of the Pergola design.  A pergola is quite simply a means of not only decorating your outdoors, but it also has the practical function of allowing your loved ones to stroll around the house in a shaded pathway. For the added romantic effect, many customers have a penchant for allowing vine-type plants to grow along the pergola as well. In Malaysia, orchid lovers use Pergolas as areas to hang and display their orchid plants which petals are delicate enough to need protection from sunlight.

Of course, some would argue that a skylight could just as easily replace the role of a pergola, but it all comes down to a matter of personal choice and taste. While the skylight is suited for modern and sleek homes, the pergola also has its own charms of bringing the homeowners closer to nature.

As we all know, the current weather can be very harsh and unforgiving. Occasionally, even stocking up with iced lemon tea and having your air-conditioner at full blast is simply not enough to keep you cool on a hot Sunday afternoon. The shadier your home is, the less chances there will be of your home over-heating. This means that even when it is not in use, the Pergola indirectly creates more shaded areas around your home, thereby helping the homeowner to reduce energy waste while still allowing you to keep your cool composure. Of course, it goes without saying that this would also mean that having a Pergola will also help you to save costs in the long run as well.

Supercool Creative Culture Sdn Bhd currently offers its clientele four types of Pergola designs for their home. The Tropical Pergola design features tropical hardwood and roof tiles. This Pergola is designed based on the Balinese Tropical Garden concept where the roof of the Pergola matches the current home’s existing roof tiles in order to give the illusion of a continuing pattern. The Pergola has a natural timber finishing that is water resistant and is ultra violet protected to guarantee robustness through a period of time.

The Breeze Pergola, on the other hand, features tropical hardwood and replaces the roof tiles for polycarbonate material. Similar to the Tropical Pergola, the Breeze Pergola is also designed to match the structural concept of the actual house in order to make the house look larger. This wood for this pergola construction has also undergone surface treatment to ensure that it too lasts for a long time.

Next, we have the England garden Pergola that is made up of solid hardwood. Customers usually select this pergola when they want to add a hint of the British Colonial element to their tropical home. For added effect, vines and climbing plants are usually allowed to grow along the pergola as well.

Finally, we have the very interesting Natural Light Pergola that features tropical hardwood and highly transparent glass that mixes old school classic wood deco with modern design. As its namesake, Natural Light Pergola will allow ample light into the pergola to give a cheerier effect at home.

While we are on the topic of Pergola, do take some time to check out Supercool’s collection of Gazebos as well, as these two furnishings would complement each other greatly.

Posted by supercool | Posted in Skylight | Posted on 20-08-2010

In this tough economy everyone is prowling the streets trying to figure out how to save money. As a matter of fact, we are not only facing the challenges of the economy but are also tested by our living situation- which is why every household or individual is challenged to help save energy for a greener environment.

How can we save?

Most families are trying to find solutions to problems like these. One way of solving this is installing a skylight into your house. The skylight is a structure placed at the roof of a building or house to allow natural light to travel and brighten the interior of a building or house that do not receive much daylight. It is often installed in places like hallways, walk-in-wardrobes, bathrooms, living rooms and verandas.

Advantages of Skylight

The skylight is one of the solutions to solve lighting problems in buildings and even in residential spaces. It offers a lot of benefits besides obviously providing free and natural daylight. One of the major advantages of having a skylight is energy efficiency. Since natural daylight is used to brighten your residential or building premises, you don’t have to turn on the lights which means a cut down cost on your electricity bills. Skylight is also environment friendly as using this can save a lot of energy.

It is also one way of preventing over heating especially in places with tropical climates. Another advantage of having a skylight is creating a stylistic feel to your home. If it is installed properly, the skylight can make your home distinctively fashionable. It  not only provides natural ventilation but also gives you the option to incorporate style into your home.

Materials

We at Supercool Creative Culture are proud of the quality of our skylights. It is constructed from mild steel and polycarbonate sheet. Polycarbonate is a material that can resist direct sun rays. We are also using imported materials to ensure the quality of our products. Our polycarbonate materials are direct imports from Korea, Switzerland, and Taiwan. We use only the best quality of polycarbonate materials to produce an optimum cooling effect and provide a comfortable living space. We respect an honest, fair and trustworthy business relationship thus we ensure that our polycarbonate materials have 10 years warranty from our manufacturers.

For a very challenging world, skylight is the perfect choice.
