Heatstrip Classic heaters from Thermofilm were installed in the cold and rarely used courtyard of a home in South Melbourne to transform the small area into an inviting, liveable and functional space.

Steve Taylor of COS Design met the owners’ brief to create an outdoor retreat in their small inner city courtyard, complete with a plunge pool for the summer months as well as flexible shade and an alfresco kitchen.

Steve designed a contemporary, yet warm and welcoming space with liberal use of timber decking and panelling to add privacy. He also installed a retractable shade system equipped with Heatstrip Classic heaters as well as a plunge pool and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen.

An award-winning landscape designer, Steve Taylor hosts ‘Best Gardens Australia’ on the 7 network, which showcases Australia’s best garden designers and their work.
