At dion seminara architecture, we are highly experienced in indoor/outdoor renovations. We have worked with clients from across south-east Queensland and know what it takes to truly incorporate an outdoor space with the flow of an indoor room and transform how you live.
Are you a backyard entertaining enthusiast? Do you want an outdoor space to relax and unwind? Regardless of your reasoning, dion seminara architecture’s Indoor-Outdoor area expertise means that we can create backyard spaces that are usable year round – regardless of weather conditions! An indoor outdoor room is an outdoor space which is connected to the interior of your home. These spaces act as an extension of your home to provide you with more living, entertaining, and relaxation spaces for you and your family. An absolute must for any modern home, indoor outdoor areas are a great way to get the most out of your space.
The best indoor/outdoor renovations offer ample space and room to move. At dion seminara architecture, we understand what a growing family needs, and also what works for homes in our climate. We can work with you, whether you want an intimate space for relaxation or an outdoor area that can transform to cater to all of your friends and family.
When we begin the design process, we are going to go through exactly how you’re planning on using your indoor/outdoor room. We want to understand how you’re going to be moving in the space and what’s important to you.
A true indoor/outdoor room is one where the room can be completely enclosed to look like an internal room, and yet open up to become a semi-enclosed space. However, if the space is only semi-enclosed at best, then it is an outdoor room.
Our design team can even help you with furniture design that suits your space without overwhelming the area. We implement functional design that adds an aesthetic appeal, and we want to ensure that your indoor/outdoor area is a space you use for years to come.
You need a specialist who has experience and expertise in the factors that will create a fantastic indoor/outdoor living space for you in your home. dion seminara architecture are those experts, and we would love to help you achieve a fantastic space with excellent designs. An indoor/outdoor room design that blurs the lines between nature and the security of indoors is a true triumph in design.
When we’re designing and developing a space, we spend a lot of time speaking with you and getting a feel for what you want from your home. Do you want an intimate space or one that connects with the yard, garden or swimming pool? Or would you prefer a clear distinction between the indoor and outdoor elements of the space? We’ll also ask if you plan to cook or cater in your outdoor space and can implement elements that make entertaining a dream for you.
The desire to connect the indoor space with the outside elements has grown in the past ten years, to the point now where an indoor/outdoor room design is an integral part of most new homes or renovations. Whether you are looking to renovate your existing home and want to bring more of the outdoors in, or you are considering a new build and want to get advice from architects who are experienced in this kind of design; know that we can help you.
The advantage of true indoor/outdoor room design is the ability to close it off completely during bad weather, while still being able to use the space. Think about those incredibly hot or the occasional cold Brisbane day, or perhaps a seasonal thunderstorm. The ability to shut unwanted weather out gives true indoor/outdoor rooms a huge advantage. When it comes to home architecture, we can work with you to ensure that your indoor/outdoor room design truly opens up.
