fire up the pizza oven

The extended family of this contemporary home in the inner west wanted to a space that everyone from each generations could enjoy.

What was once a large expanse of mostly unused lawn is now a lush tropical paradise with organic shaped garden beds overlooked by a relaxing lounge terrace that also connects with the large family pool.

Necessary but unsightly utility services such as washing lines are hidden away at the rear of the garden and screened with cascading hedging and linked by lawnsunken steppers weaving through the garden.

A lush internal garden with palms and bromeliads completes the picture.
