Connecting the kitchen of a renovated 1910 home to the garden, pool and landscape beyond, this alfresco space in Adelaide features honed concrete, slimline bricks and lots of silvertop ash. “We wanted to contrast the heavy masonry walls with lightness, greenery and landscape,” says Sally Wilson, director of Archaea Architects. Polished concrete is used inside and out, and 3-metre-high aluminium sliding doors with invisible screens ensure visual continuity. A timber-screen cabana with concealed storage is located behind the pool, and the brass outdoor shower is a favourite spot for the owners. “It’s great to sling a towel over the glass fence and rinse off while standing on the steppers among the plants,” they say.
