Playful Bungalow

Challenges

The configuration of the mechanicals in the backyard made it difficult to find a convenient, attractive location for the outdoor kitchen. We also wanted to disguise an otherwise plain garage, which was the main focal point of the backyard.

Opportunities & Solution

We relocated the home's electrical service and air conditioners to free up the best spot for a small grill island buffet. This had the added benefit of clearing space for the outdoor living zone. We constructed a jungle gym pergola structure to allow for creative play and significantly improve the look of the existing garage. A mini tree fort was built tucked into a corner tree. Now the yard feels more spacious and is open for all kinds of fun.
