Making dreams a reality in Darlington

An ambitious design brought to life with a custom-built and stylishly designed outdoor space.

The brief

To take a complex design from dream to reality with a backyard transformation stretching across multiple split levels and connecting seamlessly to the newly built home. With an ambitious plan and utilising various materials and textures, everything had to come together as a custom-build to suit the shape and orientation of the newly built house and natural landscape.

The solution

Taking our client’s dream design, we collaborated to build multiple stylish spaces connecting the pool, house and backyard into a seamless sphere of entertaining opportunities.

With a three-level roofline, the Merbau timber deck and custom flat-roof pergolas come together in a statement backyard design, perfectly complimenting the new modern home. Providing an all-weather space to enjoy and including a concrete pool bar, glass and rendered walls, fan, lighting, stylish ceiling finishes and a space for a hanging swing seat, this pergola area is a masterpiece in itself.

Quality designs and materials surround the pool, including timber decking, a Jarrah screen wall, a living garden wall, a custom concrete staircase, custom timber staircases, glass balustrading and stylish finishes of ALUCOBOND® cladding and custom aluminium.

With a pizza oven completing the backyard oasis and stylish spotted gum timber fencing in the front, the Elite Built team worked with the Space Capsule Garden Co crew to give our clients stunning outdoor spaces to complete their newly built home dream. Now they come home to a swim-up pool bar, sweeping views over the Adelaide coast and an outdoor living paradise perfect for entertaining or resort-like relaxation.

“The yard has multiple entertaining spaces now that are all interconnected. We can have bigger groups with everyone spreading out rather than being crammed inside. And when it comes to summer, we’re out there every night.”
