Designing for Outdoor Living When Space is Limited

Owen Landscape Architect just completed a design for a client who retired to the golf club community of Lora Bay, located a few hours north of Toronto on the outskirts of Thornbury.

The client had a beautiful backyard living space in the home they just sold in Mississauga and wanted something just as nice for their new home.

The design challenge was to fit their program into a relatively small space: a deck centred on an outdoor wood burning fireplace; a swimming pool; hot tub; barbecue area; and a storage shed.

The outcome was beautiful!

Outdoor Living Patio for Brooklin Estate Lot:

Owen Landscape Architect just completed the Design for this large property north of Whitby. The site presented some challenges due to the proximity of the septic bed's counter slope - a 4:1 embankment all along the flank. In addition there was no direct connection from the upper floor main level down to the walk-out from the basement level where the patio is to be located. The area for the patio was effectively a sunken area with an embankment on one side and an imposing house on the the other!

The client's program called for: 1. wheelchair accessibility 2. an in-ground spa with a water feature 3. a lounge area 4. an outdoor kitchen with a bar 5. a wood burning fireplace close to the dining area.

Owen Landscape Architect recently had the pleasure of providing detailed design services for a project in Mississauga. The Conceptual Design had various elements that required detailed design: a water feature; an outdoor kitchen; a garden pavilion - all of which had integrated architectural lighting.

Once the design was done a comprehensive working drawing package was pulled together thereby forming quantifiable documents for tendering and construction.

This "professional" approach is distinctly different from the usual approach that so many homeowners take - which is to hire a Design/Build landscape company.

Typically these companies have a formulaic approach - a set way of doing things, or, "cookie cutter design". It lacks the true intention of what a professional brings to the table. An analogy would be an architect designing a house versus having a contractor built something generic.

The attached are examples of these custom-crafted documents

Owen Landscape Architect had the privilege of designing outdoor living spaces for a number of clients. Every client and their space is unique so we endeavour to create a design solution that is specific to that spatial problem; I avoid repetiton at all costs and envision a unique design for them.

Recently we have made it mandatory to include 3D rendering as part of the scope of work. I have found this to be an invaluable tool!

Owen Landscape Architect just completed a concept of an outdoor living space for a backyard in Etobicoke in the Kingsway area. The relatively small space has been transformed into an outdoor lounge "room" and an outdoor dining/kitchen space beneath a pergola. #Patio Design Toronto #Garden Design Toronto #OutdoorLiving Spaces Toronto #landscape designer toronto #toronto landscape architect #etobicoke garden design #etobicoke landscape architects #landscape architects etobicoke #landscape architects toronto #landscape designers toronto

The initial step in my design process is what I call the Envisioning phase. After documenting the property and drawing up a base plan, I explore the potential for the space taking into account the physical attributes of the site and the client's criteria. I try and offer up options whenever possible, and this front yard project in The Blue Mountains close to the Georgian Bay Club is an example of that. I drew an organic/naturalistic plan and a more formal one - the goal in both being to create a "gateway" at the driveway entrance, and to make the paving area within have the feeling of a Courtyard. #PatioDesignToronto #GardenDesignToronto #OutdoorLivingSpacesToronto #landscapedesignertoronto #torontolandscapearchitect #landscapearchitectstoronto #gardendesignerstoronto #landscapedesignersthornbury #gardendesignthornbury

Just completed this plan for a custom built modern home in Thornbury Ontario. I bypassed the usual schematic concept and went straight to what I refer to as a Detailed Concept Plan because I was so excited with the design! #PatioDesignToronto #GardenDesignToronto #OutdoorLivingSpacesToronto #landscapedesignertoronto #torontolandscapearchitect
