Unveil a New Verandah and Deck with Custom Outdoor Living – And Enjoy a Brand New Vista
The view from the living room has now been customised in length and style, with a fabulous outdoor living space, at this older brick home in Templestowe.
Custom Outdoor Living have extensive experience as Alfresco Builders in Melbourne, and this one will bowl you over.
Custom-made decorative screens were used to filter out neighbouring views and semi-enclose the dining table, and matching pendant lights were suspended from the ceiling. The look is modernist, light and tidy, with a lovely side pathway to enhance the clean feeling of space and original design.
At the outset, there wasn’t much to this backyard area. However, an existing entry gate through the carport has now become ideal access, so that guests can easily get straight to the barbeque, pull up a chair and make themselves at home.
And, with a new 50 square metres (approximately) of decked entertainment platform, the summer months will no doubt be filled with relaxing times surrounded by fresh air, sunshine and friends dropping by to help fill the spaciousness with laughter and good times.
Our very own Designer, Kaaren Jukes, set out to let light shine through, but also block out the elements, to ensure the owners could enjoy their new outdoor living and dining area throughout the years. “There were some challenges,” says Kaaren. “One of them was to contend with the Alfresco crossing both a single and second storey of the home.
We managed to resolve this by using two roof angles and by providing light wells, to ensure daylight could continue to reach into the lower and upper storey rooms, as well as cast natural light across the decked area.
The owners wanted a new and unique living space that would blend in with their existing home, and keeping to the brief is something we’re always proud to be able to deliver at COL.
We view each property as a distinctively one-off site, and always customise our clients’ wishes into our designs – but, we’re also not afraid to suggest ideas that will value-add and enhance their original thinking.” For instance, Kaaren felt it was important to angle the deck to allow for two separate living and dining spaces, rather than simply present an open plan rectangle. This gave the client more of a sense of intimacy and flexibility when entertaining.
