Patios, Terraces & RoofgardensBook
ARCHITECTURE. The outdoor spaces are often referred to as intermediate, given that they are neither interior nor fully exterior; situated within an architectural framework, they are carefully planned and incorporate structural elements, a defined layout, and a series of accessories that can include anything from plants to furnishings. Designed to function as additional living spaces, they should provide the qualities necessary to fulfil this purpose, such as adequate lighting and ventilation, comfortable furnishings, attractive views, and a logical relationship with the interior. In this way, exterior areas must create the sense of security and comfort associated with being indoors. The use of structural elements and accessories that are commonly found inside a home can create this feeling of enclosure and containment.
