Welcome back to past clients

We looooove to welcome back old friends – after completing an alfreco outdoor living area for Andrew & Annabel  10 years earlier at their previous home in Killara; it was great to work with them again at their new home & welcome them back into the Emanate Family.

Although we already had a relationship with Andrew & Annabel, we still took them on the journey at the beginning to ensure we got the design & detail perfect. It had been 10 years since their last alfresco construction – new home, kids have got older & circumstances naturally change; so we needed to understand exactly what they were looking for in their new home.

The existing structure had a few ‘flaws’ that we needed to work around:

  1. There was an existing glass roof which just didn’t work on a number of factors
    The structure was very ‘top heavy’ & bulky and a little ugly
  2. There was a narrow passage way which was effectivey a dead space & wasn’t able to be used
    Pointer….To learn a bit more about getting the right size for your outdoor living area, read more here
  3. The old fashioned timber pergola down the far end had no protection from the elements & was inviting them out to use the area

We apply to Outdoor Rooms the architectural-style thinking
that uncovers your needs & your tastes...
then get the details right.

We are delighted with the product & team - also the after sales/completion service.
We would highly recommend them to anyone
