In Australia we are blessed with all year round good weather, except for the occasional period of bleakness. It only make sense then, that our outdoor spaces should be used to their full advantage, especially in the warmer seasons.
The image below shows a home where the outdoor spaces have been designed to create areas that are multifunctional. Furniture and fabrics were chosen to be weather resistant to all conditions, this was part of the clients brief to us, it had to withstand harsh sun and moisture.
The home has a large wrap round verandas, which were just open empty space, not being utilised at all. What has now been created, is 'individual outdoor spaces', that suite the requirements of those who live here. Private intimate spaces for quiet time, open space for entertaining and spaces for conversation and interacting with family and friends.
