Prada Veranda Ceiling System | Aluminante

Aluminante introduces Prada, an innovative freestanding floor system designed for constructing winter gardens, greenhouses, verandas, and more. Prada offers a unique opportunity to connect with nature and embrace the surrounding landscape, enhancing the quality of living spaces with abundant natural light. Unlike traditional interpretations of winter gardens as unheated porches for seasonal use, our goal was to create a system that allows year-round occupancy.

At the heart of the Prada system is its independent, integrated roof structure made of thermally insulated aluminum profiles. The aluminum-glass roof features inverted "T"-shaped rafters and sub-rafters supported by continuous canopy beam profiles and wall joists. This innovative design enables the creation of complex roof geometries and the incorporation of windows and doors into the vertical walls.

The main structural profiles of the roof are the canopy beam and the adjoining wall beam, designed as hinges that support the roof structure and allow for a 5º to 45° rotation of the roof plane. Inside the room, the rafters and sub-rafters create a smooth surface integrated with the glass plane, while the exterior showcases visually striking rafters and glazing beads.

Aluminante's Prada Winter Gardens system excels in profile insulation, rainwater tightness, airtightness, and provides effective ventilation with the use of suitable equipment regardless of weather conditions. To ensure proper water drainage and ventilation, a cascading system of interconnected rafters and sub-rafters, along with rotational profiles for the canopy beam and adjacent wall beam, has been implemented. This design facilitates easy installation and processing of rafters in the workshop.
The canopy beam profile includes an integrated internal drainpipe that prevents condensation accumulation on the interior glass surfaces. Solid EPDM membranes ensure full waterproofing and wind resistance, while maintaining insulation and preventing cold air infiltration into the aluminum profiles.
