The Coorparoo Project

One of the advantages of owning a multi-level home with an outdoor living area upstairs is that you can use your ground-level space to create a garden room or alfresco area that serves an entirely different purpose. In this instance, the owners' desire for an outdoor spa proved the perfect motivation to redesign and upgrade their unappealing backyard. The upstairs deck looked down onto a very ordinary, seldom-used, sloping backyard. This had remains of previous structures and a timber retaining wall that didn't quite make the grade.
