A recommendation for a relaxing retreat
When Serena and Dennis from Sydney’s North Shore had their pool installed, they envisioned completing it with a sheltered cabana – somewhere they could sit quietly and enjoy their new addition.
Their pool builders recommended Greenspan and having viewed the range, first online and then in the Display Centre, the couple agreed a Melwood would be perfect.
With immaculate gardens and a brand-new sparkling pool, Dennis and Serena had a very specific vision for their new garden room. A bright and breezy Melwood Mod, was the ideal starting point. The modern design with its crisp, clean lines was the perfect complement to their pristine pool and gardens.
A creative collaboration towards connection
Together with a Design Solutioneer, they made the modifications that would personalise their design and create exactly what they were after. Although Serena and Dennis made a number of changes, they found the task of personalisation to be effortless. “It was a very straightforward process,” they confirmed, “It was good to be able to see the product immediately on CAD and make the adjustments immediately.”
Dennis and Serena added sliding doors to the side and swapped the standard windows for additional doors. Coupled with the highlight windows that are the signature of this design, the result is an interior filled with natural light. Throwing the doors open on two sides connects the room and garden as one.
Set at the end of the aquamarine pool, surrounded by shiny white pavers, the garden room is styled to match. All white windows, doors and cladding are accented with a light grey roof and flashings. The white theme continues inside, highlighting the splashes of green foliage that connect the interior with the surrounding garden.
A relaxing retreat, unplugged from life
In doing so, Serena and Dennis have created a sanctuary in the backyard dedicated to leisure, reflection and relaxation. “It has allowed us to utilise space in our backyard,” Serena and Dennis tell us. What would have been unused space at the end of their pool now serves a purpose.
It’s a place to recharge. “Our family and I use it as a relaxing space for reading and meditation, away from electronics and the noise in the house,” Serena confirms, “It’s heaven for a busy mom…the relaxation and calmness are amazing”.
