After discussing with the client, we agreed to design a new outside space that used a circular patio terrace as the focal point. Using paving, the area utilised the position of the sun at numerous points during the day. This allowed the whole family to relax and enjoy being outside. Previously a large, unattractive wall had created a cold shade across the entire garden. We removed this along with hiding an equally ugly oil tank, covering with a timber screen to give the garden extra aesthetic appeal.
