The intention of this project was so that this family were able to see the nice views of the lawn area below, through some Iron railings from their kitchen and bi-folding doors. The piano shaped patio was a great idea and meant that there were not too many right angles making this high patio area flow much better and not too clinical. The winding steps illuminated by subtle lighting, descending to the lawn below finished it off perfectly.
During the construction the family had an idea that concrete ballast rails would be a preferred choice as opposed to the black iron railings. As a flexible building contractor we were able to complete the request with a new design. Meeting the time constraints of the project we cast our own concrete plinths and copings, creating the desired look.
