The architecture of pergolas is diverse and depends on the overall compositional design. The format of the pergola is chosen based on the tasks: zoning, decorating public space or creating a new element of the urban environment.
Depending on the task selected: awning, screen, visor, tunnel, canopy. The distinctive features of the pergola are the presence of repetitive sections, supports and arc elements and lattice overlap. It is important to take into account that the design of the pergola in the city should be equally expressive in winter and summer.
Traditional pergolas are used in various styles, repeating their motives. Today, metal, polymer materials, concrete, stone, and plexiglass are widely used in making these structures, along with wood, a classic material for pergolas. The type of material depends on the location and functions. Functions of pergolas:
- Space zoning
- Decoration of a green area with climbing plants
- Hiding structures that are out of the design concept
- Decoration of an entrance space
- Creation of places for rest and solitude
