Courtyard – Mosman

Good Design can change your life

The owners of this Mosman terrace house decided they wanted to return to Melbourne to live and gave themselves 3 months to get this property in order. Prior to renovations the back courtyard area was old and run down.

Floor to ceiling windows spanning the entire rear of the house made it even more important there was an attractive outlook. As Australians we spend a lot of time outdoors so our outdoor spaces are equally important as the indoor spaces. This effectively added another room to the house.

The one non negotiable point was that the shed had to stay as the owners saw this as an additional selling point, providing extra storage space. Our solution was to cover the doors with bamboo blinds that could be raised for access and disguise the end with a water feature and Chinese star jasmine that would quickly climb over the attached wires.

Needless to say the property sold within two days of going on the market.
