As seen in Urbis August 2013, LOCARNO's SL130 motorised panels create an abstracted weatherboard aesthetic to the bungalow facade, uniting it with surrounding houses while offering a bold alternative from the street front.


"By using the wall of blades to softly manipulate light, the home reveals a sensitivity belying its bold contemporary form...It extends the timeless, functional qualities of a 'plantation' aesthetic to better suit the urban context."

- David Ponting
