Design Philosophy

Bullet Modern Materials, Traditional Craftsmanship

At Penumbra Designs we take our design cues directly from our clients. With over a decade of experience in the outdoor design and build industry, we have had the pleasure of working with some of the finest architects and builders in the area, many who have had design influence on our current models.

Our designs incorporate modern high strength, low maintenance materials and are implemented with a keen eye towards exceptional craftsmanship. The result is an attractive, quality product able to withstand the most demanding requirements of any residential or commercial environment.

Bullet The Perfect Blend of Form & Function

The beauty of both fiberglass and aluminum lies within the exceptional strength and stability it provides while remaining a lightweight, low-maintenance material ideal for outdoor structures. Both are corrosion-resistant and unaffected by variations in temperature or extreme weather conditions, it is the ultimate material for pergola construction. Aluminum offers the clean sleek lines for modern contemporary designs while fiberglass offers classic proportions and the workability to delivery traditionally styled beam and rafter carvings.
