Brief: The clients are very busy working professionals with two young children. Their house had recently been modernized. Its interior was minimalist and contemporary in style. They saw their garden as a potential to create more living space. They wanted to be able to flow between their internal and outdoor living.

Creating individual areas in the garden was important but the garden had to remain open so that the children had space to run around.

We proposed bringing the indoors to the outside by using exterior tiles that matched the colour of their internal flooring. This would create the continuity they were looking for and maintain the contemporary clean lines that they had already created in their home.
