Whether you live in the midst of the city bustle, on the coast or in the countryside, the chance to spend some of your downtime outdoors is a precious thing indeed. And while we at est wouldn’t necessarily call ourselves ‘outdoorsy’ people, simply sitting out in the sunshine with a good book or a cup of coffee is one of life’s truly simple pleasures.
When it comes to creating impactful indoor outdoor spaces, there’s no hard and fast rules. Being mindful of the space’s limitations, climate and how you intend to use it are of course strong starting points, but as these designers show, there’s plenty of ways to get creative when uniting interior and exterior areas. Regardless of the space you’ve got to work with, these projects prove there’s always a way to bring the outside in, or vice versa.
