North Lakes Pool & Entertainment Area Design


Entertainment Area Design

In a sea of project homes surrounding the local golf course, a contemporary, streamlined roof breathes new life into the area with its newly created entertainment area design.

Originally from Western Australia, our clients moved to North Lakes and set down their roots in a local community with the most up to date facilities. They had made new friends and planned on staying long-term in their home, but desired a resort-style ambience that could turn their project home into an oasis for their family and their friends.

Design vision

The design vision was to create a cutting-edge contemporary outdoor space that was relaxed yet luxurious and opened the home up to give the clients the sub-tropical retreat they desired.

What was formerly dark and closed is now light and open. Removal of an internal wall and the addition of a skylight let the light into the existing living, dining and kitchen areas and opened up the home to allow breezes to cool the space naturally.

Resort ambience makes its stamp on the family home through the new outdoor area extension. The striking cedar wood brings warmth to the new outdoor area and combined with the Haiku style fans provides much-needed relief from the humidity. The beautiful waterfall and the tropical plants were designed to give our clients and their visitors an instant feeling of relaxation and calm. A resort-style design wouldn’t be complete without a private pool the clients could spend the hot days unwinding in. The chosen pool design complements the new streamlined roof of the entertaining area.

With a young child and family pet, it was important to our clients that the new extension was as easy to maintain as possible and was designed to evolve as the family did. Easy maintenance combined with the quality and resort-style luxury the clients were after has provided them with an area that will enhance their lifestyle for years to come.
