Gardens and yards are important factors in the design of any home. As much as we want to bring nature indoors, making the most of any outdoor living space you have is key to enhancing the appeal of your home. Whether you are landscaping a large outdoor space or constructing an inviting patio or balcony, HomeDSGN has the inspiration for you.

This house, done in a retro style, was remodeled in the year 2017 by the architectural firm Paul Butterworth Architect to fulfill the wishes of a couple that, with a tight budget, wanted to turn it into a nest in which to accommodate their little grandchildren in safe spaces full of light.
Their expectations were fulfilled, since they were able to adjust the budget to a practical and elegant option.
Custom lighting, veneer cabinets and luxurious stone products come together to transform everyday life into a truly joyful experience. Meanwhile, the multipurpose room has a queen size bed hidden behind a wall. Other interesting features include a two-way mirror, designed to show both the entrance to the house and its central courtyard.
In total, three outdoor spaces are easily accessible for residents and visitors. In addition to the internal courtyard, the back garden also plays a vital role in this family home. Here, its owner nurtures his commercial interests with a facility for the collection, spinning and bottling of honey. Meanwhile, the plots in the back-garden produce watermelons, corn, grapes, passion fruit… and a healthy variety of other fruits and vegetables.
