This luxury outdoor kitchen and dining area combine elegance with functionality

A spectacular outdoor kitchen and dining area. An effortless indoor-outdoor connection and an impressive outlook over an exquisitely Glen Iris landscape design -what more could the discerning homeowners and avid entertainer desire?

"The challenge for this Melbourne landscape design and construction project was to integrate the outdoor and indoor living areas of the home, with the emphasis on creating a luxurious space where friends and family could be entertained year-round." says John Woollard of Exquisite Gardens Australia.

Incorporating only the finest fittings and finishes, this elegant entertainment space boasts a fully functional outdoor kitchen, including a sleek granite island bench, state-of the art cooking station and range hood There is also a granite work/preparation bench, complete with sink and hot water; a refrigerator, white vinyl-wrapped cabinetry, stone walling and feature wood stacks.

The outdoor kitchen is located adjacent to the dining area, which allows the owners to cook and talk to guests at the same time. When seated at the table, which is large enough to accommodate 10, guests can relax in neo classical splendor and savor the view of a traditional urn water feature positioned at the end of a grand colonnade This colonnade draws the eye out into the meticulously landscaped garden area and adds an air of elegant formality to the setting.

During the day, skylights in the roof of the outdoor room allow natural light to flood in. At night, ceiling and wall lights combine with the garden lighting and water feature lighting to create the perfect atmosphere for a formal dinner party or a casual dinner with the family.

"For all the hard landscape areas to this Glen Iris garden design we have used customized natural stone paving sizes that would ensure a seamless integration between the indoor and outdoor area. The result is a design that is truly timeless," adds John.

"All in all, this is a project that is a perfect blend of classic styling, natural materials and modern functionality.
