One of our first requests for a multi-use area of this nature, this backyard provides not only outdoor entertaining space but also a large sport court for the kids (really it’s for Dad). Spatially, a lot of the same principles apply. Function, convenience and a pleasing flow from the indoor kitchen to the bbq and outdoor sitting area are critical. This is sistered with wide accommodating steps, clean sight lines, a logical pedestrian path to the main play surface and finally, enclosures and plant materials that respect the sight lines of neighbours on all sides. Another space management challenge.
