Balgowlah Heights Outdoor Turnaround…

Let’s walk you through this outdoor transformation, which we’ve completed for a previous client in their new home. 

Watch the video below & get some inspiration as to what could be done for your home. 


We previously worked with Andrew & Annabel close to ten years ago at their previous home in Killara, where we also installed an opening & closing, louvered patio cover – so they were well familiar with not only the product but us & what we could deliver. 

They had lived in their new home for a number of months prior to reaching out which I think enabled them to take their time & fully understand how the local weather conditions work with their new home & ultimately give them a better idea of what could be done, where they would like to head & what was important to them. 

What was there had a good life but it was time for a upgrade. 

The glass pergola structure didn’t work well with the narrow balcony area & really only provided a walkway to the main deck, which in turn was uncovered & only had a timber pergola – making it unusable to most weather. 

The keys in this outdoor living area was:

Creating more usable space
We started by removing the hedges & large set of stairs to widen the narrow walkway which created a new usable space where a table setting could go & helped to link the kitchen, living areas to the outside. 

Modernising the area
By getting the colours right & keeping it simple in terms of design, the new outdoor area carried through the features of the existing home

Providing usable outdoor cover 
The glass pergola was dated, the looked bulky & the blinds over the top had failed. The ‘Eclipse’ louvers were carried through the whole area to bring consistency & flexibility so they can use the area no matter what the weather. 

Local Authority Approval was required for this construction, as most of our works do. We brought in our local town planner to help with the Development Application & to ultimately get the stamp of approval.
