Outdoor/Indoor rooms are not a new idea in architecture, but their growing popularity makes us believe they will continue to be one of the biggest trends of 2019. This trend involves turning outdoor spaces into indoor extensions, having more space for entertaining, or just having an outdoor vibe in an indoor room.

Bankhall Lane in Hale started with the original idea of remodelling the existing property housed on the site. However, working alongside the structural engineer, we discovered that the existing foundations weren't sufficient to accommodate the planned changes.
