The catalyst for the homeowners to extend the only usable outdoor space on their compact section was the need to give their pizza oven a permanent home. Now at centre stage, the coveted oven holds court over the most versatile of rooms, where the homeowners can entertain under the stars and in warmth and privacy.

Whilst not a big build, the extension was a tricky proposition. Great thought and attention to detail were put into the function of the room. One added benefit to the addition was the large rimu-framed doors, which now bring light into the previously gloomy interior of the main house.

The room's privacy is achieved by automated blinds, which retract at the touch of a button. Recessed dimmable LED lights around the skylights enhance the room's atmosphere. Where the homeowners previously had to remain indoors, they now have the best of both worlds.
