Indoor and Outdoor Rooms


The interplay of inside rooms with outside rooms makes for a successful house plan.

Think of your front yard, side yards and back yard as rooms; a gate as a front door, fences as walls.

Design large outdoor areas into outdoor rooms, based on use—like planting, sitting, swinging, BBQing, playing, even parking. Don’t just place a BBQ pit on the patio, design the area around it.

Design what you experience of the outdoor rooms when seated on your sofa, or seated at the dining table or laying in your bed? This exterior view can be just a backdrop or the focal point of the interior room.

Likewise what do you experience of the indoors rooms when viewing from outside?

Design & enjoy both the interior and exterior rooms of your home.
