The huge kitchen doors lead to a wide, entertaining deck for outdoor furniture from marks and sparks. Completely waterproof too! The deck was planted and enclosed with a mature olive tree, to add to the feeling of enclosure. A smaller dining terrace, in Italian travertine, was set at the end for a round table and chairs. Large lanterns light the outdoor space at night and the deck is much safer for the children now. Originally there were three steps down from the kitchen door but it's no fun having a garden where you're constantly looking out for small children. Louisa and the clients worked together to create a garden that really complements the house.
