Scott Brown Waterwise Alfresco Garden

<< Alfresco Living project 1

As this townhouse is not huge, Scott had to use his creativeness to devise an 'outdoor room' - a barbeque, alfresco dining and entertaining space to function as an extra living space.

To blend in with the townhouse, Scott selected a rust-coloured water feature which he designed himself, brown Merbau decking, aubergine-coloured slatted screens and red-wine glazed pots. These features all function as important elements.

When planting out the area, Scott chose a combination of traditional and modern plants. Architectural yuccas and strappy cordylines sit alongside dwarf azaleas and English box. Magnolia Littlegems provide a green lushness together with some potted herbs.

Scott also designed a system of adjustable lights specifically suited to the alfresco living space, which adds an intimate and atmospheric touch and allows the alfresco area to be used day or night.

This pool and Alfresco Kitchen is part of a relaxed, casual garden and entertainment Oasis set within  the sand dunes and coastal scrub  of the Mornington Peninsula. A stunning but relaxed atmosphere can be enjoyed both day and night.

Scott Brown Alfresco Pool Entertainment Precinct


Scott Brown Alfresco Pool Entertaining
<< Alfresco Living project 3

The owners were looking to introduce some formality and structure to the garden. They wanted some space for the kids to play, an area near the pool for sunbaking and an attractive outdoor alfresco entertaining area.

The design involved a new pergola, concrete paving around the pool, a gently sloping lawn area and a terraced garden off to one side, along with some clever design tricks to draw attention away from the off-centre pool and palm.

This oasis is a drought-tolerant garden, cleverly mixing modern plants such as agaves with more traditional ones such as ornamental pears, abelias and lilly pillies.

Having created this client's outdoor environment for their previous home, their new home became Scott's next exciting challenge.

The superbly-appointed kitchen/alfresco dining room 'floats' above the generously proportioned swimming pool. The alfresco living room overlooks the surrounding gardens, and captures the expansive views of Port Philip Bay.

The elegance of this splendid home has been extended in the design of the pool, alfresco kitchen and dining room, and surrounding gardens. The result is a picture in which all these elements blend seamlessly together. The building can be fully opened to enjoy the summer days or nights, or it can be partially or fully closed if the winds or weather dictate it all without loosing the magnificent views and vistas.

This indoor-outdoor solution links the interior of the house with the pool and back garden, which were previously separated.

The resultant alfresco entertaining space extends the home out to the pool and garden, and can be used during the day or night, at any time of the year - thanks to the outdoor heating.

The glass roofed atrium has been designed to allow light into the rear of the home, whilst preventing the alfresco living area from over heating in summer.

This alfresco space is used almost every day and has recently served admirably for an 18th birthday party. It will soon be host to a 50th birthday celebration, during which the fully-stocked wine fridges will be put to good use.
