"Pioneers at heart"

An adventure down under

It's extraordinary how life works out sometimes. We wanted to see a lot of the world and in the early 2000s we moved to New Zealand. The continent of new opportunities, high prosperity and - above all - of a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle. New Zealanders live outdoors all year round and the sun can burn pretty badly there.

Not surprisingly, the best sun protection concepts come from New Zealand. We were particularly taken by the opening roofs. Beautiful, open constructions that provided shade and sun whenever we wanted and at the same time let in light in a unique way. If it rained, we closed the louvers and were sheltered. What a wonderful way to live outdoors as much as possible.

A childhood friend spent his holiday with us and was just as enthusiastic as we were. Together we decided to bring this beautiful concept to the Netherlands. In 2006 we launched Livium, introducing the openingroof to the Netherlands and Belgium. It turned out to be the start of a new adventure.

The adventure started with importing complete systems from our supplier Louvretec in New Zealand. Meanwhile, Livium manufactures the systems itself. This allows for even faster delivery and a better response to customer needs. The Louvretec design is still integrated in the beautiful end result. They supply the original components, allowing us to guarantee the best quality.

Leader in the high-end segment

Leaders know that details make the difference. Pioneers dare to colour outside the lines and think in terms of possibilities. Louvre roofs in luxury yachts or sloping roof surfaces, louvre panels with angled corners, triangular shapes, wood veneer or rounded sides: we rise to any challenge. Architects know how to find us for their most challenging projects.

We control the entire process ourselves so we can deliver quickly; flexibility is our great strength. Keep in mind, however, that delivery times can increase during busy periods. Quality comes first and customisation requires attention and craftsmanship.

We have our own fitters who install our Livium louvre systems in the Netherlands, Belgium and abroad. Our fitters are fully specialised to ensure expert assembly.

No, we don't. We leave construction and contractor work to the specialists. We work intensively with contractors, carpentry companies and steel construction companies throughout the Netherlands. Do you have your own company in mind for your construction work? Then of course we work together with them.

We are not a contractor company or veranda builder. Moreover, in new construction and renovation projects, there is already a general contractor carrying out the construction work. We deliver and install our Livium louvre systems as a subcontractor and do the work preparation in cooperation with the main contractor, client and architect.
