The surf mad family of the eastern suburbs home wanted to maximise the space they had so that it appealed to every member for the home.
Although the existing spa had to stay it was in the complete wrong location as it was viewed from every room in the house (and lets face if they’re not the most attractive things). We relocated it to a more private part of this L shaped garden and included a new outdoor shower to remove the ocean salt after a surf before climbing in for a beer via the cool, cantilevered concrete steps.
New bluestone paving was laid in an extended entertaining area that has a concrete cantilevered bench for winter chilling around the ‘fire bug’ which was custom made for this project. A bespoke 10 seater polished concrete dining table ensures theres always room at this table.
A contemporary studio was included as a study space for the teenage son. All zones are connected by organic bluestone paving sunken in softening ground covers with planting on both ground level and in stone raised garden beds.
