Terrace Extension and Beautification

Architectural Design & Construction
Current Stage:
Design finalised. Pending construction

The existing property is a detached house with staggered terraces toward the rear of the site.

The design proposal aims to further enhance the outdoor experience of the existing swimming pool terrace by extending the existing terrace to maximise the usable space of the plot which is currently lost with its circulation around the area. The existing kitchen will be split into a WC and a store room, and the existing WC, located on a lower level to the swimming pool terrace, will be demolished and replaced by a new bigger kitchen which will be raised to the swimming pool terrace level.

A beautification of the terrace was proposed to the client by redesigning a new floor finish, redecorating the walls and adding planters to further soften the landscaping and to keep the identity of the existing garden area.

The works include the construction of a new pergola which provides shade to the dining area in front of the new proposed kitchen.  At the request of the client, a new pergola was also proposed next to the swimming pool in order to differentiate a lounge area which allows the terrace to be enjoyed in a different way.
