Patio - modern courtyard patio idea in Vancouver

Echo BeachModern Patio, Vancouver

With a clear connection between the home and the Pacific Ocean beyond, this modern dwelling provides a west coast retreat for a young family. Forethought was given to future green advancements such as being completely solar ready and having plans in place to install a living green roof. Generous use of fully retractable window walls allow sea breezes to naturally cool living spaces which extend into the outdoors. Indoor air is filtered through an exchange system, providing a healthier air quality. Concrete surfaces on floors and walls add strength and ease of maintenance. Personality is expressed with the punches of colour seen in the Italian made and designed kitchen and furnishings within the home. Thoughtful consideration was given to areas committed to the clients’ hobbies and lifestyle.

    The lighting is attached with eyelet bolts to the cement wall and plugged in at the roof of the house.
    We had prepared the electrical to accommodate Christmas/seasonal lights.

    This courtyard sits just outside the entrance to the home.
    It appears sunken as it is situated on a sloped lot, and this is at the top of the property, or front entrance and sits adjacent to the driveway and garage, but has been landscaped for privacy.

    It is 16 x 12 ft.

    I don't believe we sealed the exterior concrete on this project,
    but you can source a clear, flat sealer through www.brockwhite.com which we used on the interior concrete in this same project.

    Thanks for your interest.

    The lights are all separate strands attached by an eyelit hook on the concrete wall,
    and then plugged in on the roof which was prepared for Christmas/seasonal lighting.

    It creates a great ambience!

    Hope that helps!

I’ve lived in small spaces all my life, so I am a huge fan of utilizing any available overhead space. If you have a terrace or balcony, no matter how small, bring a little festive whimsy to it. For instance, instead of adding fairy lights — or, as I call them, Diwali lights — to the windows, string them overhead in a place that has an electrical outlet. I have done this on my own balcony, and the result is quite stunning. Not only does it look beautiful and different, but it also makes for a practical lighting solution even after Diwali is over, when you want to enjoy a few glasses of wine outdoors with friends and family.

4. String lights. Simple strings of white lights hung like a ceiling over an outdoor table make even the plainest backyard feel beautiful, intimate and fun.

Hung directly above an outdoor dining table, twinkle lights can illuminate an evening meal.
