Roseville Pavilion contemporary-patio

Roseville Pavilion

The Pavilion is a contemporary outdoor living addition to a Federation house in Roseville, NSW.

The existing house sits on a 1550sqm block of land and is a substantial renovated two storey family home. The 900sqm north facing rear yard slopes gently down from the back of the house and is framed by mature deciduous trees.

The client wanted to create something special “out the back”, to replace an old timber pergola and update the pebblecrete pool, surrounded by uneven brick paving and tubular pool fencing.

After years living in Asia, the client’s vision was for a year round, comfortable outdoor living space; shaded from the hot Australian sun, protected from the rain, and warmed by an outdoor fireplace and heaters during the cooler Sydney months.

The result is large outdoor living room, which provides generous space for year round outdoor living and entertaining and connects the house to both the pool and the deep back yard.

The Pavilion at Roseville is a new in-between space, blurring the distinction between inside and out. It celebrates the contemporary culture of outdoor living, gathering friends & family outside, around the bbq, pool and hearth.

Are the skylights Glass or Plastic? What is the Source? - I too have a north facing deck and would like some of it covered. However, I still want to let the light in from the west/east. I'm interested to learn more about the design/construction of this roof. Can you provide more detail? Thanks

Skylights are corrugated laserlite (plastic not glass) to fit the colourbond roof sheeting profile. Normally would not recommend skylights in this location due to heat load, but this site had many established trees to the west.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A barbecue for Christmas. Cooking on the barbecue takes center stage on Christmas Day, especially if the temperature is on the rise. Rather than cranking up the indoor oven and overheating the host and the home, we let prawns sizzle happily on the grill while the traditional pork and lamb crackle away under the barbecue hood. With a fully equipped outdoor kitchen like this one, a chef wouldn't find it hard to employ many helpers.
