This solution for a local Canberra resident included a complete backyard transformation – from a lacklustre and underutilised space to an all-weather outdoor room which can be enjoyed all-year-round.

The Solution

A Helioscreen All Seasons Retractable Roofing System gave this home the flexibility to adjust the shade and cover according to the weather – all at the touch of a button. Complete with lighting, it offers a comfortable space to entertain or relax with friends after the sun goes down.

For those days when it may be wet, cold or windy, with the addition of Helioscreen Zip screens motorised with a Somfy Connexoon offer total
all-weather protection and comfort.

The timber decking installed by Canberra Decks completes this alfrescoo solution perfectly. It acts as an extension of the home to increase the lounging and entertaining space – and enhancing the aesthetic of the home and backyard.

The addition of a table and seating, as well as a BBQ makes it the perfect area to entertain guests on weeknights or weekends.


The result

This inviting space is now a much loved part of the home. It seamlessly connects the house to the backyard, and has completely transformed the view.
