From Basic to Brilliant in Berwick
Architectural Designs are just the beginning, with Custom Outdoor Living in Melbourne
As one of the leading Alfresco Builders in Melbourne, we’ve got the edge when it comes to taking a large, backyard space and turning it into a sanctuary for entertaining family and friends, whilst maximising your opportunity to enhance your lifestyle.
The owners of this home had budgeted carefully when they built their existing home. They knew they had the potential to expand when the time came, and when their financial situation would allow it. Enter Custom Outdoor Living.
Managing Director of Custom Outdoor Living, Mr. Matt Goodie (a Registered Builder), took one look at the Berwick owners’ brief and the whole concept quickly came together.
“There was so much potential to turn this open area into a haven for everyone in the household to enjoy the fresh air, find protection from the elements, and hold parties that could take place regardless of the weather forecast. Paving had already been established, and the owners’ brief included a desire to create a modern outdoor area to complement the existing home, with nice clean lines and a contemporary feel. At 8.5x 4.5metres, this large Alfresco in Melbourne is now a fabulous arena for the ultimate occasions where everyone concerned can experience the feeling that they can have a quiet chat, take centre stage in a large group, or just let the teenagers ‘do their thing’.
We installed a parapet roof that was rendered in a colour to carefully match the original decor. We deftly placed the columns for necessary roofline support (with engineered timbers, to allow for large openings), installed two strategically-placed skylights, and planned everything around the concept of the owners being able to access the new Alfresco, and particularly from the sliding doors that gave direct access to the internal Family Room. A 75mm foam base was used for the rendered texture, and low voltage downlights now set the mood of subtle ambience when day turns to night.”
Custom Outdoor Living takes great pride in ensuring that each of their Alfresco builds is tailored to meld and merge as a natural and seamless extension of the original home building. Renowned for Designer Excellence, high-end finishes, and the quality of their skill and experience, the company tailors each Alfresco Design to have a particular and special purpose, befitting the needs of the owners and their unique desires in upgrading their home, AND the potential of the land space available.
“At Custom Outdoor Living in Melbourne, no two Alfresco Design and Build projects are ever the same. We always see your home as an opportunity to blend your imagination with ours, and come up with a practical perspective on what’s possible and allowable, and then bring your dream lifestyle vision to reality – within YOUR budget. We’ve been passionately delivering customised designs for over twenty years already, and see ourselves continuing to raise the bar for many years to come.”
