90 Outdoor Vertical Fences, Walls Design Photos And Ideas

A backyard garden.
"The design separates public and private space by a covered, but external walkway," said the architects. "By juxtaposing these positions, the house acts like a camp – retreating to the tent to sleep and living under the tree canopy outside – a universal gathering space connected by landscape rather than built form."
The garden pavilion sits adjacent to the original house and overlooks the reworked garden and new pool. The pool is surrounded by a metal screen element that's also repeated elsewhere in the project.
The project’s chief designer Liu Kai and his team reconstructed the first floor to better connect it with its formerly isolated interior courtyard.
Because of its narrow site and messy interior layout, the original apartment was dark and cramped.
The architects preserved the front of the house, but incorporated three bedrooms, a dining room, and lounge area into the new floor plan. They renovated the bathroom and laundry room and built a new powder room.
Named the Crisp House after its first inhabitant Edward Crisp—an Irish brewer who founded a brewery on a street near the property—the house was in fact a prefab timber cottage that was imported from England when the early English settlers arrived in Australia in the 1850s.
Scott has incorporated a bespoke timber and steel staircase next to the terrace to create a sunny core.
The upper floor has been set back at the front to make space for a another terrace with large potted plants.
Before the renovation, the darkest corner of the home was at the back of the property. To bring light to this part of the house, Scott created an internal roof terrace on the second floor.

The structure is built entirely of reinforced, poured in-situ concrete, except for the metallic pillars on opposite ends of the home.
