As Canadians, we don’t take our warm weather for granted. We stake claim to every moment of sunshine. In cherishing the landscapes we have, we strive to extend our outdoor happiness as much as possible, creating a sort of second home, within reach of the fridge. Be inspired by what’s possible and work with what you have.

The Marriage of Space

Although this rooftop patio has a small footprint it barely feels like its own entity. The indoor and outdoor areas have been married seamlessly by repeating the colour scheme already chosen for the living room. That was easy. Running the deck boards vertically, the lines lead us away from the living room creating the illusion the patio is much deeper. Built-in bench seating maximizes the capacity for entertaining while maintaining clean lines and minimal detail so we can notice quirky accents like the teacup planter.
