Courtyard Makeover – Paddington

This Paddington courtyard is still one of my favorite projects to date, it is always a challenge to provide a healthy balance of greenery and practical entertaining space in a tight courtyard – which Sydney has no shortage of.

By creating focal points and interest in the garden, we turned this courtyard into an extension of the home. The bifold doors on the back of the terrace enabled us continue the tiling to give flow to the two area and cladding an existing garage with a hardwood timber gave a beautiful backdrop  with a sense of warmth.

We also gave the front of house an upgrade by using tessellated tiles with some unorthodox colors to keep in theme with the era of the facade as well as giving a modern twist which is highlighted with the standout yellow door.
