The newly completed Sporting d’Hiver complex, in Monte Carlo, Monaco is a stunning 250 € million development which includes premium mixed-use pavilions and the city’s most prestigious casino.

Complete with luxury residential abodes, as well as an art gallery, boutiques, offices and conference facilities, the complex makes the most of the city, sea and mountain outlooks with floor-to-ceiling glass frontages.
Architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners wanted a pergola shading system that would fit in with the high-end surroundings, but could also retract when necessary, and last for a long time without deterioration and with minimal maintenance.

The TESS™640 system was specified for its unique spring mechanism which holds fabric flat regardless of the angle the system is installed at. The mechanism is concealed within a single fabric roller, so the blind is almost invisible when retracted. 4mm stainless steel rods guide the shade.

Each rooftop terrace required eight shading systems and in keeping with the light and airy feel of the buildings, they were each fitted with TESS™Poly 5% in white. Made from tear-resistant polyester, the material has a PVC coating with fungicidal and dirt-repellent finish and UV absorber. It is also flame resistant according to DIN 4102-B1.
