Following the success of IMAGES’ bestselling title Courtyards for Modern Living which featured modern courtyard designs from Australia and New Zealand, we decided to expand on this popular concept by compiling a new book with a more global focus. Alfresco Living will feature 50 stunning courtyard and terrace designs from around the world.
This new hardcover coffee-table book on courtyards will also be the latest volume in IMAGES’ sought-after 21st Century Architecture series. It will feature a diverse and inspiring collection of residential courtyard gardens and terraces, both external and internal. These are outdoor spaces that have been thoughtfully designed as extensions of everyday living spaces in order to maximise their use and aesthetic benefits year-round.
The projects cover a broad range of styles, sizes and budgets. There are courtyards built around feature trees, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits and outdoor kitchens and lounges. Also featured are beautiful interior courtyards resembling oversized terrariums, which act as light wells and provide natural cross ventilation, creating a tranquil atmosphere inside. There is also a focus on courtyards where water takes centre stage, in the form of ponds, plunge pools, lap pools, fountains and other water features. Also included are courtyards with innovative shading devices to mitigate harsh sunlight, as well as sustainable garden designs and drought-tolerant plantings.
