A backyard office fit for a CBD
What was a huge mud pit in the garden has been transformed into a sleek, modern structure complemented by tiered decking surrounds. And an office space to rival any in the CBD.
The eSpace, looking like it stepped straight off the cover of an architectural magazine, is truly a style statement. As is popular with this design, Lisa and Aung opted for a contemporary black-on-black aesthetic. The surrounding timber decking complements and adds warmth to the overall look. And all impressively completed by the homeowners themselves!
The interior has been finished to equal perfection. Echoing the vertical eco hardwood to the exterior is internal timber panelling to the walls and ceiling. Painted a contrasting warm white, the high-end finish continues inside as well as out.
Lisa has created a backyard office space that caters to every working day need, ensuring a complete separation between home and work.
One end is dedicated to desk space, with a special spot on the floor reserved for office pup and colleague, Reggie! A kitchenette and bathroom provide the necessary comforts to get through the day and outside there is an adjacent covered deck where Lisa can take her breaks and enjoy some screen-free time in the fresh air. She can even take a dip in the spa at lunchtime!
An upgrade: From spare room to luxury backyard office
Lisa has certainly had an upgrade! From a desk in the spare room to a luxurious backyard office that she can escape to for the day.
And everyone is happy!
“As a family of five that includes three teenage boys, our Melwood has meant that everyone has their own space to study and work,” Lisa says.
The growing boys have their own bedrooms. Lisa has a work from home space that wouldn’t look out of place in a modern CBD precinct. No commute or battle with traffic necessary. Plus, a muddy wasted space has been transformed to a fully landscaped garden. One that is crowned with the statement feature that is this happy family’s Melwood eSpace.
Lisa’s Melwood is an eSpace 1600 measuring 5.4m x 3.2m.
It features Eco Hardwood Cladding and has been personalised further with aluminium windows in “Black” and Colorbond® roofing in “Nightsky”.
Lisa added a panorama window, upgraded to double glazing, and omitted the standard eSpace decking inclusion.
