The International architectural style of Oak Court is highlighted by simple, contemporary landscaping. Here, large pavers are softened by lush grass, and a large built-in grill area is great for prepping food and entertaining.
For the homeowners, the built-in brick grill was a selling point of this Spanish-style home. And after a serious outdoor remodel, their courtyard is now a comfortable place for both relaxing and entertaining. It's equipped with two grills, a living wall, hammock, shade panels and lush greenery.
A stacked stone fireplace and indoor grill are two features that bring distinction to this cozy sunroom. Though the room started as an outdoor patio with retractable shades, it evolved into an enclosed, climate-controlled space for the homeowners to enjoy lounging, grilling and watching TV. The design team kept the "outdoor room" feel by using indoor-outdoor furnishings, fabrics and materials.
The outdoor entertaining potential of this home is maximized with the addition of two heavy-duty grills. An ample countertop makes quick work of food prep, while a bamboo backsplash adds visual interest.
Constructed from eco-friendly composite material, the side deck successfully connects the dining room to outdoor spaces. A grilling station and urban-chic furnishings accommodate gatherings large and small.
A modern grilling space by Word + Carr Design Group, complemented by purple and green foliage, intersects beauty and function. The wood and steel bench holds a smoker while the wood retaining wall adds refinement to the native vegetation of Austin, Texas, earning this structure the ASLA 2018 Award of Excellence in residential design category.
Here, a gorgeous coastal home featuring a beautiful front porch. With island breezes, there's no better place to sit on a summer evening than a screened in porch with all of the amenities for a cookout and gathering. For the winter months, there's a fireplace to keep cozy while enjoying the outdoors.
