Plantinum Outdoors



Working with a dated 1970s-era backyard, Platinum Outdoors has transformed the ordinary into the extraordinary, all within a three-week timeframe. The clients had a specific vision and budget for the project, as well as a deadline for completion before their family visited for Christmas.

The clients wanted the backyard to be the centrepiece of the home, with a fluid feel from the indoors to the alfresco. By raising the timber decking, the outdoor area now seamlessly connects to the internal floorboards. The installation of a firepit with timber bench seating creates a warm and welcoming entertaining space that is the focal point of the backyard.

By combining the clients’ ideas with its own natural flair for design and creativity, Platinum Outdoors has created the perfect outdoor oasis, ideal for both warm summer days and cosy winter evenings.

Platinum Outdoors is a complete outdoor renovation specialist. The company completes all timberworks, including patios, cedar lining, decking, alfrescos, carports and timber screening. Platinum Outdoors has its own team that can coordinate every aspect of your outdoor renovation including landscaping, electrical and brickwork, making it a onestop renovation shop.

Established in 2009 by Kyle Riemann in partnership with his wife Alex, Platinum Outdoors works across the Perth metropolitan area building between 50 and 100 projects each year. The company is able to custom-design as required and will build with products to suit the customers’ needs.

As well as outdoor design and construction, Platinum Outdoors is a keen home renovator. The company has reliable tradespeople in all areas that can manage all building jobs.

Midland Brick



More Western Australians recognise Midland Brick for paving than any other brand in WA. In fact, 40 years ago the company developed the first commercially-available paver in Australia, which was used on the forecourt of the Perth Concert Hall and is still in place today.

Four decades on, Midland Brick is still setting trends with innovative products for both the building industry and homeowners. Not limited to just bricks and pavers, Midland Brick products include retaining walls, terracotta roof tiles and high-quality stone wall cladding.

One of the latest offerings from Midland Brick’s Middle Swan plant is ‘Promenade Granite’, a paver that combines the contemporary look of exposed aggregate with the advantages of paving, including design flexibility, easy DIY installation and trouble-free maintenance. This new range comes in seven colours and includes bullnose pavers to give pool owners plenty of choices when looking for a safe non-slip pool surround.

‘Cultured Stone’, a versatile cladding from the USA, has quickly become a favourite among Western Australian builders and designers. Its versatility extends from feature walls and fireplaces to barbecues, patios and wine cellars. Lightweight and affordable, Cultured Stone is available in a wide range of colours, textures and sizes, giving you an abundance of choice for both inside and outside your home.
