Packing a powerful “wow” factor, the Big Time outdoor design from award-winning designer Ryan Hughes Design Build transformed a South Florida home’s outdoor space into something not only beyond expectations; but beyond imagination. From an initial request for a seemingly floating circular fire-side lounge, designer, Ryan Hughes, drafted a creatively complex, yet calmly cohesive outdoor design. Incorporating architectural elements with fanciful fire and water features or custom textures with state of the art audio visual, an epic outdoor venue for enjoyment and entertainment resulted.
A functional flow was achieved by the Ryan Hughes Team within the project’s nearly 5,000 square feet of outdoor space. Well appointed, but unconfined, the outdoor rooms included at the epicenter a pool area with circular fire patio that beckons guests from the moment they enter the home’s front door. A dining area and bar with modern seating and a stainless outdoor kitchen is surrounded by textural elements as well as natural ipe hardwood. The dramatic outdoor entertainment lounge was designed with custom sight and sound built within the wall covered with four 50 inch televisions. This audio-visual wall, cladded with Norstone stone veneer and glass tile, flows into an adjacent hearth area. Additional lounging and deck areas, a spa and natural plantings accomplish a complete outdoor story. Each room was meticulously planned and crafted to encourage exploration and entertainment. Decor elements do not take a backseat to the desired functional atmosphere. Every aspect of relaxation and gathering was accomplished “big time” within this outdoor space from the professionals at Ryan Hughes Design Build.
