Skinner – Athenree

Design and Build

This is an elevated family lifestyle property with wonderful vistas and a 1980’s style home. Our clients greatly enjoy entertaining and their wishes were to create an outdoor dining and entertainment area adjacent to their home which could encompass a large dining table & fully housed BBQ. The gardens were to be low maintenance with easy growing plants. Our challenge was to keep the space open and sunny, maximising the view whilst providing shelter from the prevailing wind & privacy from the driveway entrance. The main boundary fence separated this area from cattle and therefore needed to be robust but attractive. The main dining area had to be raised and retained to take the weight of plenty of parties! We kept the theme rustic to enhance the rural surrounds and complement the dwelling and existing landscaping. Raised garden boxes border two sides of the dining area and with wide copings double as extra seating. The privacy/shelter screen incorporates a decorative panel and water feature to be enjoyed from the inside while the outside of the screen features a ‘picture frame’ showing off wonder island views to approaching visitors and the occupants each time they enter the car park.
