Opening out in St. Ives

“Eclipse” Opening Roof Outdoor Living Area; St. Ives

This is a perfect example of how to transform an existing unused area into a flexible outdoor living area that can be used all year round. As you can see in the ‘before’ photo, the area was small, unsightly, uneven & had no cover nor any room for an outdoor table.

We worked with the client & their selected landscaper who was completing new lawn, garden & timber decking to the entire property. We also staged the construction to work with another trade whilst they swapped over the existing tiled roof for a new Colorbond sheet roof. So all in all, there was a total property transformation.

Patioland handled & took care of the required specifications & plans for the Complying Development approval which was required for the construction.

The design allowed for the louvers to run North/South so gain as much control of the natural sunlight in both Summer & Winter. This way our clients can control the sun to not only the outdoor living area but the interior of the residence.
