What our clients are saying...
Types of Outdoor Seating Areas
The options and possibilities for outdoor seating areas are endless; however these are a few common outdoor seating area options:
Solid Fixed Bench Seat
Solid fixed bench seats are a solid cube or rectangle style seat that is fixed in place and cladded with the desired finish.
Movable Bench Seat
A moveable bench seat is a solid cube or rectangle styled bench seat which is movable and cladded with a lightweight flexible finish.
One of the most common layouts for outdoor seating, L-shape seating enables people to sit perpendicular to each other, ideal for small to large groups.
If you have the space, why not go BIG?! A u-shaped seating area is the ultimate crowd pleaser creating a perfect space for people to gather, facing each other making it easy for large groups to sit together.
Size of Outdoor Seating Areas
The size of outdoor seating depends on the space available, the amount of people it is required for and the purpose of the project. Typically, designing a space to suit 5-10 people will suit most lifestyles and families; however your seating could be purpose built for 2 to 15+. Outdoor seating areas can be built to suit any site and size.

What is a Fire Pit?
A fire pit can be made with a movable fixture or a built in structure, built from a range of materials including stone, brick, and metal. The common feature of fire pits is that they are designed to contain fire and prevent it from spreading. On the Sunshine Coast, we have a very short cold season; however, there is truly something special about being able to spend a cool winters night around the fire with friends and family.
