A recent design by Steve Taylor of COS Design, shows how best to utilise a small space, in an inner city courtyard in South Melbourne.

Steve explains that “the owners asked us to turn a cold, never used courtyard into an inviting, liveable and functional space with a plunge pool for the summer months, flexible shade and an alfresco kitchen”.  The outdoor retreat Steve designed is contemporary, yet also warm and welcoming with the liberal use of timber decking and panelling to add privacy.

The “big ticket” items were a retractable shade system equipped with Heatstrip® Classic heaters; a plunge pool and full equipped outdoor kitchen – everything you need for outdoor entertaining.

Steve Taylor is an award winning landscape designer and C.O.S Design is one of Australia’s most highly regarded companies. Recently, Steve has also been hosting “Best Gardens Australia” on the 7 network, which showcases Australia’s best garden designers and their work.
