32 “It’s rare to find a bal­cony of this size,” says de­signer Peter Reeve of CRD. For this Syd­ney apart­ment, he and land­scape ex­pert Rob Grif­fith of Evolve­ment cre­ated a se­ries of out­door ‘rooms’ for sun­bathing, re­lax­ing in the spa, loung­ing, bar­be­cu­ing and din­ing. Key el­e­ments are hard­wood deck­ing, paving, a green­wall, pots with hardy coastal plants and new light­ing through­out. The all-im­por­tant shade struc­ture in laser-cut steel is a real hit. “The sun was too in­tense out here,” says owner Cather­ine. “Now we en­joy lovely dap­pled light un­der the per­gola.”
