Patio Living

This project, designed by Kieran Oakes, the design consultant for Patio Living, came to fruition because homeowners Rob and Joanne wanted more outdoor space in which to entertain family and friends throughout the year.

Due to an awkward change in levels and unusable space leading out from the indoor dining area, the family had almost abandoned the idea of using the outdoor space at all. However, thanks to Patio Living’s high level of dedication and expertise, they now have a stylish alfresco dining area that’s the envy of all their friends!

The team at Patio Living visited the site on numerous occasions and advised the clients on which design and materials would work best. Gradually, the dream became a concept and the concept became a series of 3D colour drawings that allowed the clients to visualise how the space would look once completed before a single tool was even picked up! The once much-neglected area has now become a haven in which to relax or entertain. A generous merbau deck has filled in the unusable void, and a bespoke roof was constructed with a contrasting white ceiling.

The custom façade has been texture-coated to match the walls of the home for a seamless effect. Patio Living also designed a balustrade with stacked shutters, which provide privacy from the neighbours while achieving optimum ventilation and letting in plenty of light. Merbau screens were added on top of the property’s boundary wall, for even more privacy, while downlights were installed to create the perfect ambience in the evening.
