Renovators love Auckland’s inner-city suburb of Herne Bay for its rows of Victorian bay-fronted villas. Architect Darren Jessop of Jessop Architects has had a considerable hand in renovating more than a few of them. He’s even shared his designs in an e-book, aptly titled “Heritage”, and figures he has five projects on the go around the suburb right now.

How to create an outdoor room with soul

Outdoor rooms are experiencing a ‘moment’ right now, with landscape designers being given increasingly complex briefs.

We caught up with two leading landscape and garden designers to find out what’s driving this outdoor room zeitgeist.  And, more importantly, how we can make the magic happen in our own backyards.

Sandra Batley from Flourish Gardens believes that as our lives get busier we are looking for ways to relax and unwind. An outdoor room offers that escape.

“Properties are also getting smaller and higher density living is more common place. Homeowners are therefore happy to pay professionals to help them create that sanctuary outdoors and get as much as they can from their biggest asset – their home,” says Sandra.
