Outdoor living at its finest in South East London. A collaboration by LXA Architects and Simon Orchard Garden Design in the picturesque area of Blackheath in South East London.
A wonderful example of fantastic London design spearheaded by LXA architects; contemporary design working together with traditional architecture to create a luxurious space for modern living. LXA Architects transformed a building of five flats into one large, prestigious home. Covering more than 8,000 square feet, the property now boasts a swimming pool and numerous other leisure facilities.
With a building this size and specification it was crucial that the outside space reflected the same luxurious feel and Simon Orchard Garden Design did not disappoint.
Simon has created an outdoor oasis that works seamlessly with the architecture of the building. As part of this design he has created wonderful outdoor living spaces from which one can enjoy the design of the building. A part of this design he has incorporated a Solus Decor elevated halo to create a warm and inviting space.
The elevated halo fire pit is perfect for outdoor entertaining. It truly embodies the idea of outdoor living all year round. Like all our fire pits it is available in ten different colours and three different fuel options; bio ethanol, LPG and natural gas making it compatible for all situations and styles.
