Eco House Patio

A sleek, contemporary and sustainable outdoor space.

Vancouver architect Clinton Cuddington designed this sleek modern back patio, in keeping with the environmental theme of his home. A vegetable garden, indigenous plants, water-saving automatic sprinklers and permeable concrete pavers all contribute to this backyard's eco cred.
