Alfresco Living features courtyard gardens and terraces designed to become part of the interior spaces of the homes they adjoin. These courtyard spaces function as outdoor rooms and become extensions of everyday living spaces.Many of the outdoor spaces featured are architect-designed, while others are the work of landscape designers. Some outdoor spaces are expansive, featuring green roofs and swimming pools, while others claw back a bit of the urban landscape to provide a low-maintenance escape for homeowners.
