Outdoor Alfresco Designers and Builders

Outdoor living and entertaining is part of the Australian way of life. The climate in most parts of the country is ideal for being outside, and it is part of our culture to entertain family and friends in the great outdoors. In your alfresco design, it is about bringing the outside world in and extending living spaces past the back door.

What exactly is Alfresco?

Alfrescos are generally built under the main roof of the house from a new
build or extension and give the appearance of being a part of the original roof structure.


Ideally, you want to design your alfresco room to feel as integrated and connected to the indoor living spaces as possible.


What is the difference between
Alfresco and Patios?

While an alfresco area is usually built under the main roof of the house, patios are an additional structure that is attached to the existing building or eaves without altering the homes existing roofline.

How to add an Alfresco area to an already existing home?

There are many ways in which to design your alfresco area to appear as though it is an existing part of your home. Matching the interior and exterior floor levels will make your alfresco area appear to be an extension on your internal living space. The same applies to the ceiling heights – matching these up will give the impression of a seamless flow from one area to another.


The doors you choose can affect the transition between your inside and outside spaces. Large sliding, folding or concertina glass doors that push back or fully retract, will decrease the barriers between the spaces and open up the house to the outside.
