Abstract


The outdoor room is meant to be a private, intimate space that connects the interior of the house with the garden, providing an environment for relaxation and connection with nature. As in decorating the interior of a house, the purpose of decorating the outdoor room is to create, with a personal imprint, a place that can be called "home". Throughout history, garden and gardening have been, under different forms and modes of manifestation, both a necessity and a passion. Even though it is a relatively new concept, demand for outdoor rooms is increasing. The pace of life today pushes people more and more towards making the most out of moments of recreation and rest, and this kind of space is conducive to that. The surface on which an outdoor room is arranged is in most cases quite scarce, and this creates the real challenge for the landscaper; the principles of arrangement are the same as for large spaces.  The adage "strong essences are kept in small bottles" is representative of the work presented here. The task at hand was to arrange an outdoor room for a recently renovated property, for which three variants have been proposed with three different styles.
