Luxurious Outdoor Living
If there’s one place that should be the centre of your happiness, it’s your outdoor living space. As the great Anton Chekhov once said “People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy”. And it’s true. Few things are better than endless days of relaxation in your own private paradise.
The overwhelming need to entertain and relax in the comfort of home in such a paradise planted the seed for a tailor-made outdoor living space for a property in The Villa Community, Dubai.
Mainly motivated by the idea of having a suitable area at home that would reduce the need to go somewhere else to have fun, local company Cape Reed International (specialists in creating eco-friendly customized outdoor living spaces) was contracted to bring this idea to life.
Always up for a challenge, the team put their passion and years of international experience to the test and closely liaised with the client to create the ultimate entertaining area. Right from the start Cape Reed was actively involved in the entire process – from the conceptual and design phases right up to the final construction, landscaping and interior decorating.
A contemporary bar area was created to overlook the swimming pool and was designed with the primary aim of having great fun and is now the uncontested favourite spot to watch the game and entertain friends and family. The fully equipped bar and seating area is finished off with a built-in BBQ and fireplace that is absolutely perfect for preparing al-fresco dinners or setting just the right ambience by simply lighting a fire.
To the side of the structure a lounge was incorporated to create a soft seating area where one can relax in a covered space that creates an easy flow from the indoors to the outdoors. Together with that the view of the garden is masterfully paired with the timber and thatch surroundings so that nature is resonated in every corner of the structure, creating a sense of calm and serenity that is second to none.
All of the natural material (timber and thatch) that was used for this project comes from sustainable resources and is imported directly from South Africa. Cape Reed places huge emphasis on the quality of their materials and practise strict quality control every step of the way. All structural timber is pressure treated and the thatch protected by special fire retarding methods that ensures a final product that not only meets the highest quality standards but one that is also extremely durable.
The end result? An extremely satisfied customer with a beautiful, versatile space in which the family can spend quality time together, relax or entertain guests in a stylish, yet casual manner, enabling them to bring entertainment home instead of having to go out to get it.
