68 Outdoor Wood Patio, Porch, Deck Side Yard Design Photos And Ideas

Because the house is narrow and long (16 by 68 feet), the design team decided to create a huge open-air space to light the interior naturally. Two retractable motor-driven 

canvas canopies shelter the space during Singapore’s frequent rains.
Located on the western Danish coast within walking distance of the North Sea, this home was designed by Soren Sarup to integrate elements of the surrounding landscape and to highlight natural, contemporary beauty. The interior fuses clean-lined simplicity, an abundance of wood surfaces, and a restrained mix of Danish-modern and vintage furniture to create a visually stimulating yet relaxing environment that extends between indoor and outdoor living spaces.
The homeowners of the Hilltop house spent time studying the wind and sun movements along their Niagara Escarpment property so that, when it came time to build, they could capitalize on the natural movement of the light and air in the design of their home.
The floors and decking are all made from long-lasting, rot-resistant ipe wood.
Sævik compares her house to a contemplative hideout. “It’s very quiet,” she says. “You can concentrate and let thoughts fly.” Her favorite summer pastimes include reading, painting, drawing, yoga, and “just sitting and feeling the forest,” she says.
The house is divided into three sections connected by a series of outdoor galleries. “When I walk from one room to another, I have to go outdoors and feel the weather and nature—rain, cold, and sun,” says Sævik. 

Instead of emphasizing the expansive panorama of oak, pine, and aspen trees, the house frames select views—a move inspired by Japanese design.
This Southern Californian home by architect Sebastian Mariscal has a wabi-sabi spirit, and is built with shou sugi ban timber, has a koi pond, wand a protective overhang, and a tertiary space known in in traditional Japanese homes as the
The juxtaposition of old and new architectural forms is best viewed from the courtyard between the garage and playroom. Timber shingles and vertical boarding can be seen on the sun-shading and sub-floor skirt of the villa respectively—these subordinate materials of the historic architecture are given primary roles in the new design.
The indoor-outdoor feel of the house is intensified by the three primary views – of the river, towards the forested entry path, and to the sky – that can be enjoyed from within.

Cedar siding elevates the look of the center courtyard which is a perfect spot for entertaining.
The patio and pool area are perfect for full integration of indoor/outdoor living.
Viewing Decks and Infinity Pool
The curvilinear lines and caned wicker seats of the Arlington collection reference British colonial style. Man-made wicker offers an authentic caned look with all the benefits of a modern material.

The slatted pine wood extensions add to the highly transparent nature of the house, while still providing privacy.

The chairs on the terrace are from the Rusa collection by KAA Design, and the Diamond outdoor sofas are from Cane-line.
The deck looks out over a forested section of land.
Moving the entrance off the street to the rear of the house allowed for the creation of a diminutive side yard.
Located on the south side of the house is internal courtyard with a large rectangular section cut out from the southern exterior wall.
The passageway leads out to a raised terrace at the back of the plot.

A “Schof” – a type of closed porch that’s common in the Alpine region of Austria, links the corridor-kitchen to the western side of the house.

Courtyard House, Location: Somers Victoria Australia, Architect: Rowan Opat .Evolving from the notion of a series of outbuildings

on a greenfi eld site, principles of

passive solar design have informed this �courtyard

house�. The northern eaves respond directly to

shading becoming shallower in proportion to the

depth of space as experienced in the square plan.

As the dominant designed area, on this hectare

site, the courtyard both surrounds and is

surrounded by the house, creating a contained

space within an otherwise semi-rural block.

Automated shutters overhead provide privacy when closed and shade the deck when open.
The Conine family engineered the stainless-steel chain-mail mesh curtain system themselves using bedsheets to mock up the design. In the final version, a sunscreen with grommets from Whiting & Davis blocks the blazing sun while standing up to the strong winds of the Jackson Hole valley.
A level, trellised garapa-wood deck connects the main structure to the pool house. “The arbors near the pool knit everything together,” says Mikiten. “The deck is constructed over a drainage pit so the wood surface can be completely flush with the interior floor and the surrounding yard, which is critical for a fluid experience by someone using a wheelchair.”
Anna’s house is a version of the DublDom 2.87, which has a starting price of 2.87 million rubles (about $46,000). The structure features a porch at each end lined in stained plywood. Anna surveys the countryside from under the gabled roof.
The Davis family—Everett, Jonathan, Mary Jo, and Dashwood—enjoy a meal around a Room & Board Montego dining table at their home in The Village. Their residence is the “Aria” style, one of four house types available in The Village. At 1,549 square feet, Aria houses feature two bedrooms.
From there, a private walkway runs to the shore.

The house rests just below the crest of a gently sloping hilltop and commands powerful views. Its transparency and small size aim to minimize its impact on the land.

Woody35's distinct shape makes it stand out from its surroundings despite the modest size of the building.
“Not a drop  of water is wasted here,” Nina says of the yard. “This is huge  for Mexico City. The whole terrace  is a water collector.”
