Flawlessly integrating your backyard with your living space, our alfresco’s allow you to enjoy the hot Perth summers without direct exposure to the sun.

What is an alfresco?

Alfresco is an Italian word meaning “in the open air.” An alfresco area is attached to a house or building to create a greater sense of space. Think of it as an outdoor room where you can relax or entertain friends and family.

Is an alfresco the same as a patio?

Although quite similar, alfresco’s and patios are not the same thing. An alfresco is typically built as an extension of a home, appearing to be part of the original structure. Furthermore, patios are built as an addition to a home or can be freestanding. Both are great for entertaining and allow homeowners to embrace Perth’s beautiful climate by spending more time outdoors.

Benefits of an alfresco area

An asset to any home, alfresco’s add value and flexibility while creating the perfect transition from indoor to outdoor living. An alfresco can bring function to an otherwise overlooked space, making your home feel much bigger. Take your alfresco to the next level with lighting, decking or an outdoor kitchen for a space your family and friends will love.
