This Paddington terrace home was renovated both inside and out with materials and finishes that brought the residence up to date whilst respecting the traditional style of architecture. New steel framed windows and doors connect the internal and external areas. The large sandstone rock outcrop and old brick wall above create a backdrop to contrast more contemporary features such as a skyon clad boundary wall, off form concrete bench, built in outdoor kitchen with pizza oven and crisp white planters. Lovely soft pink, purple and silver accent colours in the planting palate are used confidently to create interest and depth without overpowering the space. Layers of perennials and deciduous trees create year round interest and allow winter light to penetrate while a synthetic lawn provides a low maintenance lawn solution.
