This couple with a young toddler are both avid gardeners and love the outdoor lifestyle. They wanted to create a space where they could cook and dine and entertain family and friends and enjoy the great outdoors all year round.
I have designed an outdoor kitchen where they roast fish and bake pizzas for family gatherings with their built-in barbecue and a wood-fired pizza oven. The pergola and stylish retractable shade that I incorporated into the design keeps off the sun on the bright days and gives a little shelter from the odd passing shower.
For a final touch of serenity, the owners can enjoy the soothing background trickle of the water feature as it cascades from the outdoor counter top. Subtle garden lighting adds to the ambience for evening dining and a little clever screening obscures their surrounding neighbours.
