Deck With Adjacent Water Area

A Sculptural Island-Deck

Designed by Jamie Durie, this sculptural outdoor room combines natural and artificial materials finely crafted and rigorously engineered to create a dramatic focal point. The elliptical deck is encircled by terraced garden beds of concrete and rock, and cut off like an island by a reflection pond. A gentle ribbon of water spills over weirs in the garden beds into the pond, barely disrupting the stillness of the surface. — design and photography by Jamie Durie
