Floreat | Outside In LANDSCAPE DESIGN
After finalising the brief, Outside In designed and
constructed a backyard that is an open, relaxed
and comfortable entertainer’s paradise used for
both dining and lounging.
Providing unity between the modern, sleek
interior and new exteriors, Denise Staffa’s design
combined the inside family room with an alfresco
area, bringing the outside in.
From inside the home, where bamboo-like
artwork adorns the walls, a blank outside wall
near the kitchen servery window was in full view.
Outside In designed a lightbox that would carry the
style of the bamboo artwork outside and light up,
which is absolutely stunning both day and night.
The alfresco seats 10 people in a spacious lounge
area complete with kitchen. The space is cleanly
designed with large washed aggregate concrete
step pads that tie in with the pool surroundings.
The newly built rear boundary walls and planter
boxes give elevation to the garden while framing the
pool. Loose stones and Outside In’s signature Fern
Reed and lush screen plantings complement the
garden, bringing out the warm colours of the deck.
The true beauty of this garden shines at night.
The aggregated concrete steps use LED lighting to
create a floating effect, while the pool is lit up with
floating LED pool balls to bring the garden to life.
The balls, cubes and lightbox are available for
purchase through Outside In.
The beauty of this garden warrants its
accomplishment of winning the Designer
Residential 250sqm-500sqm category, and
finalist for the Contractor Residential - more
than $150,000 category at the 2012 Landscape
Industries Association of Western Australia awards.
