Exotic resort-style landscape design in Hillarys

The owners of this home in Hillarys, a northern beach suburb of Perth, asked Guy Mouritz of Ritz Exterior Design to redesign their disjointed and poorly planned back yard and pool area. The proximity to the coast presented the designers with very challenging site conditions of salt, wind and sun, that literally stripped paint from the front of the home. “The first step in our design for the new outdoor room was to provide shelter from the morning sun and privacy from elevated neighbours at the rear,” says Guy. “Our response was a large Victorian ash timber structure to balance the bulk of the two storey home. The timber beams join a large parapet wall on the South boundary that shields the area from wind while providing a backdrop for stone tablets that the clients sourced for the project. A louvred roof offered the flexibility to control light entering the main dining area as well as winter sun into the new theatre room. A fully appointed outdoor kitchen made entirely from 316 stainless steel is complimented by a custom designed breakfast bar, travertine paving throughout provides a luxurious base balanced by the soft tones of teak decking."

 

Favourite feature:

The stunning Victorian Ash timber, the firebowl feature and the fantastic practicality of having an extra dining, living and bar area outside in the gorgeous Perth climate.
