Our client was building their new house and had limited outdoor space. They needed to create an undercover area that would still feel open and give them a sense of being outside. Also, having polished concrete inside meant they wanted to get as much sunlight inside in winter to get maximum energy efficiency.
The solution was louvres.
We were able to cover the needed area and still give the flexibility of an operable roof. This allowed the thermal mass of the exposed slab to still be utilised whilst creating a fully functional area all year round area to entertain and relax in.
Our client had a small courtyard that she wanted to make more user-friendly all year round. While she had a lovely northern aspect, which she wanted to keep, she also wanted weather protection. There was a temporary structure in place that really was not fit for purpose.
We worked around the design constraints and council regulations and managed to incorporate all the elements that our client wanted. The result is a winter and summer space that she can come home to and a little haven to relax in.
Having just purchased a beautiful period home in central Albury our client wanted to put their own spin on it.
They were doing some renovations inside before moving in and, at the same time, wanted to create a space that could be used as both an alfresco area and for more car accommodation.
Making the addition look as seamless as possible with the existing property was very important.
We kept the design simple in order not to detract from the features of the heritage home and made the addition look seamless by matching the bricks and feature colours.
We created a very practical space that can be used for car-parking as well as a flexible patio area. The end result also keeps the design integrity of their home and doesn’t detract from the beauty of the residence.
