A plain front garden of an impressive modern new build house needed some smart, clever design to bring it up to the same modern, high-quality standard and feel as the house. As the only useable garden space, the client needed a space to relax, to entertain and for their young children to play and grow. The clever design wrapped all of this up with a boutique hotel feel that perfectly suited the client’s style and interior of their home. The seamless inside-outside space flows providing a space to BBQ or cook in the pizza oven and eat under sun or shade, just outside from the kitchen. Then space to relax and watch the kids play in a semi-sunken, secluded area gazing back across garden. All of this working over a sloping site and beautifully nestling in, enclosed by Cedar screening, to give privacy, security and creating a quiet, tranquil space.
