Renovation


Imagine.... ....a warm house full of light where you can spend time together! ....an economical house, which respects the environment and adapts to the seasons! ... a friendly house open to the outside so that the family can enjoy of the garden! Now let’s discover LUMICENE and convert those dreams to reality!


The veranda had to be reinvented!


Imagine.... you are enjoying a meal and you want to take advantage of the great weather.


Vous ouvrez panneau, deux panneaux,... Just un slide one panel, two panels,...


....and, by simply sliding all the panels, you go from inside to outside.


AVDANTAGES

Neither a bow-window, veranda nor terrace, LUMICENE is a circular balcony area, redefining the link between the inside and the outside.

MORE THAN A WINDOW, LUMICENE IS A LIVING AREA

Unlike a standard balcony or terrace, LUMICENE is an inherent part of your living area. It extends the apartment by integrating it with the living area. The apartment becomes centralised around the LUMICENE which is not only an inside/outside interface but also links the kitchen, hall and living room. In this way, LUMICENE provides structure and flexibility to the whole living area.

AVDANTAGES

Maintenance LUMICENE requires only a minimum level of maintenance. After many years of service, the rollers may eventually need replacing. Hence a spare roller is provided which is clipped under each panel. Replacement only takes a few minutes. Instructions can be downloaded from www.lumicene.com

A yearly clean with soapy water will help protect the lacquered finnish.

Industrial LUMICENE is the result of an successful alliance between an innovative company and an industrial giant. The LUMICENE company and the St Gobain Group are linked through its subsidiary Sovedys by an exclusive licence.

LUMICENE is built integrally by Sovedys and the Group provides a full 10 year building warranty.

LUMICENE «Type 1» integrated Outside Lumicène 1/2

The first solution consists of integrating the LUMICENE in the same way as a new house build. A wall opening is made and a semi-circular roof added. Be careful, however, to make sure that the house can carry the additional load.

Initially, this 70’s traditional house design had an open veranda. A 3m diameter LUMICENE was added to enable the space to be used all year round.

Due to the prevailing climate, the open veranda was not very practical. Adding the LUMICENE enabled the space to be used at any time with partial or full opening out onto the garden.

The owner wanted to update a plain house to something more attractive. A 3m diameter LUMICENE was installed and the garden was remodelled around it.

I am passionate about my garden and put a lot of time and effort into it. I wanted to be able to take advantage of it all year round. With my LUMICENE I can be in the garden in any season.

The support beams are fixed directly onto the concrete lintel which is linked constructionally with the concrete floor. Please contact us concerning metal lintels. The design and build of the terrace must take into account the soil structure. In order to achieve a perfectly flush rail, the terrace height must be 10cm below the inside finished floor.

The requirement was to create an independent area for a spa, a shower and a changing room. Hence an extension solution is needed.

We couldn’t decide if we wanted an inside or outside spa! LUMICENE enables us to choose, depending on the weather, to be in or out : it’s magic!

This project was to improve the layout of the parent’s bedroom suite in a modern house. The bathroom became the dressing room and a LUMICENE extension was used for a bathroom and a spa.

In our previous house had a swimming pool which we only used 3 or 4 times each year. We can use the LUMICENE spa all year round, inside or outside.

ÂŤI wanted a lot of light and access to the garden. I also wanted a space that could be used all year round. LUMICENE was chosen because it met all these criteria : light, comfort, warmth and perfect integration with my lounge.

A 5m diameter LUMICENE was selected which added 15.5m2 of space. It is integrated by slightly recessing it by 1 metre into the house. This extends the existing lounge rather than adding a separate room.

The method is technically straight forward : the wall opening is made and a concrete or steel beam is added. The metal frame and roof structure are then assembled. The process takes about a week, excluding the finishes.

DELIVERY

LUMICENE is a standard industrial product. It is delivered in a wooden case. It essentially consists of - a lower rail fixed to the floor - uprights assembled on site - an upper rail suspended from the floor above - between 4 and 6 panels, depending on the diameter

48.


INSTALLATION

Finishes

FALSE CEILING

The LUMICENE ceiling (225cm or 250cm) is generally lower than the rest of the room. This not only defines the LUMICENE space but, from a technical point of view, enables wider building tolerances to be used. It also enables a transversal support beam and insulation to be incorporated. The ceiling is made of plaster board mounted on standard metal framing.

UNDER-FLOOR HEATING

LUMICENE units are designed for use with hot water or electric under-floor heating. The lower rail is mounted on screw-jacks which allow the insulation and heating elements to pass easily underneath.

LIGHTING

The false ceiling enables built-in lighting to be used. It is recommended that a variable power switch be used and that the lights be positioned in a circle, corresponding to the size of table to be used. This avoids shadows in the plates during meals.

FLOOR FINISH

The LUMICEN E space is suitable for many floor finishes - typically tiles and carpets. Differentiating the LUMICENE space can produce great results.
