Lilyfield HouseContemporary Deck, Sydney

the deck
The deck is an outdoor room with a high awning roof built over. This dramatic roof gives one the feeling of being outside under the sky and yet still sheltered from the rain. The awning roof is freestanding to allow hot summer air to escape and to simplify construction. The architect designed the kitchen as a sculpture. It is also very practical and makes the most out of economical materials.

Allowing the site to dictate the best layout, they’ve opted for an L-shaped benchtop with contrasting surface materials for a relaxed, eclectic look.

The back of the house completely opens to the backyard. While this style is common in Sydney, Broe decided to push the envelope and put a third of the kitchen outside. The laundry is also outside, under the bar top, which keeps it close to the clothesline. "We wanted to take it a step further and put the kitchen, the most active room in the house, on the threshold," Broe says. Folding door: Architectural Joinery
