Let’s see what they accomplished when asked to upgrade an outdated veranda…
The brief from the client requested the improvement of their house’s existing veranda, yet also stipulated that the finished design should not look like an add-on, but rather blend in with the rest of the exterior façade.
Comparing the ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots, there are no prizes for guessing that the upgraded design is considerably larger. Thus, with the right professionals on the job, this veranda went from a regular outdoor patio to an impressive design which flaunt an open-plan layout of a spacious dining- and lounging area.
Viewing the old and new structures from the outside, we can clearly discern the more modern approach the upgraded design enjoys. Pitched roofing, timber-clad gable, generous folding doors that usher in decadent amounts of natural light and landscape views… what's not to love?
Similar to the old design, the new one also includes an open, uncovered patio where the homeowners can relax and entertain guests when the weather allows for it. And when it becomes a case of
the more, the merrier, those floor-to-ceiling glass doors simply fold out of the way to make this exterior space become one with the grand interiors. Simple, yet unforgettable!
