I say make room for an extra room in the garden up on your roof.
I have found that conversation spaces are hard to be found inside the house.
And this sets the tone to have a good conversation.
This picture does looks like a Chinese contemporary landscape of a pavilion with a reflective puddle that mirrors the garden. Absolutely gorgeous!
Let me introduce you to some functionality up here.
I love storage it keeps the mess organize.
Here comes the big bro..Store room....haha
This garden had got 3 rooms + 1 room
1. Conversation room
2. Grill room
4. Most importantly Make room for the garden
Courtyard is such an interesting space within a house. It is the soul to the house. Someone build their house starting with visualizing a courtyard garden and the rest of the spaces evolves around it!
Let me introduce the spirit of this courtyard garden....Build with the spirit to bring back a slice of river that meanders through the forest. This 'River' represented by the black polish pebbles mimics the effect of water bumps that flows through shallow waters of the forest.....
Celebrate the view of the 'River' through the forest as one enters the house....
The light feathered fern leaves softens and contrasts the nice grey painted walls
The courtyard - A place to read - A place to coffee - A feast to your eyes
