Luxury Hillarys landscape project by Ritz Exterior Design


Perth-based outdoor landscaping and architectural practice, Ritz Exterior Design, have designed the Hillarys project. The outdoor extension is a great addition to the existing stunning property in Perth, Australia.

According to the architects: “This beautiful exterior was our most challenging project ever, the contemporary Australian home is a stone’s throw away from the beach – so this meant our design and specification had to cater for a beach side property.


“Previously a large lawn area dominated the backyard and elevated neighbours looked straight into the pool area while strong south-west winds made the lawn area uninviting. A large games room at the rear of the home was also unused and formed part of our design brief. The outdoor and indoor areas were revitilised and connected so the spaces could become the new heart of the home.

“A large Victorian ash timber structure was used to add balance to the two storey home. The timber beams join a large parapet wall on the south boundary that shields the area from wind while providing a backdrop for stone tablets that the clients sourced for the project.


“Louvred rooves offer the flexibility to control light entering the main dining area as well as winter sun into the new theatre room. A fully appointed outdoor kitchen made entirely from 316 stainless steel is complemented by a custom designed breakfast bar, travertine paving throughout provides a luxurious base balanced by the soft tones of teak decking.

“The outdoor gas fire bowl takes the chill from the air, this plinth surrounded by water and the teak lounge seating is the perfect place to retire after dinner with a drink.


Interior design by Jodi Mouritz includes a custom wall unit housing audio visual components including Marantz audio, surround sound, Blu-ray and DVD player. A motorised 107″ projector screen housed in the new acoustic ceiling along with automated block out blinds provide a true movie experience. All furniture, floors, blinds and kitchenette were designed and installed by RED.

“The AV system also extends to the outdoor TV and speakers so the same entertainment can be enjoyed outdoors.”
