Roseville Pavilion contemporary-pool

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.

I like the transition between the house and the covered structure. How much did this cost?

The "link deck" was approx 3m x 3.5m, decked in spotted gum, polycarbonate roof with timber slats below. The work was undertaken as part of the overall construction project. We can offer you further information regarding pricing if you wish to contact us to discuss your project - please see our website for details.

I like the pavilion, though it is obviously much bigger and more elaborate than we would have. I like the idea of a "picnic shelter" where we could bbq, have a hot tub, sitting area, etc. Gather there with our towels to watch a sun shower hit the water while we stay warm and enjoy our outdoor party/time.
