Project Description


Denison Street, Newtown | Residential


This slim traditional terrace is located minutes from funky Newtown and is home to busy executives and growing family.

Afraid to say and as we see so often, the living space has no flow or connection to the garden and at only 8 x 4.5 mtr space it feels very cramped with table and chairs etc. The brief was clear, BBQ, seating, storage and a place to locate and protect the motor bike. Plus production, protection from the sun and a sense of connection.

We selected a tile called Lichen, it compliments internal timber flooring and is extremly hardwaring when it comes to oil spills etc. By placing the tile on an angle and using a large modular pattern we can fit in more. The layout enables the seating and BBQ storage to have better access, whilst visually stretching the garden, so feeling bigger.

The visual hero in the space is the overhead shade structure, come bike storage and cover. The curve is functional as well as sculptural and create a real cosy feeling located next to the raised sensory planting.

What I love about this garden is we designed it, but every bit was installed and planted by our client, great work Andy !!

“Steve, Callum and the team provide an exceptional service that is personalised, responsive, creative and of the highest quality. Our small run down courtyard has been transformed into a beautiful green space that provides clever utility solutions and is also perfect for entertainment. We love spending time in our new yard – thanks Outhouse design!”
