DESIGNING SPACES FOR SEAMLESS INDOOR – OUTDOOR LIVING

One of the unique aspects of the Australia, is our temperate climate, it gives us the opportunity to design homes for seamless indoor and outdoor living and to be used for a large portion of the year. Our outdoor spaces are typically designed for entertaining and include a dining and lounge area with a covered roof. To get the benefits of both light and shade, we have started to design our outdoor areas with retractable roof systems which provide the flexible use of the outdoor area without restricting light to the internal sections of the residence.

The internal configuration of the residence needs to be carefully considered around any outdoor space, as often you are trying to configure living spaces towards its outdoor environment yet there are practical aspects such as a having a TV which needs a backdrop for viewing.

THE DA SUBMISSION PROCESS

With over 20 years experience in lodgment of DA’s to various Council’s. The council process is generally seen as a technical process, yet as human beings we are visual people and this includes potential objectors such as your neighbours. We have found the visual communication of your design through architectural perspectives often alleviates the ‘fear’ of the DA proposal and allows everyone including neighbours to connect to the design.
