Asian-Inspired Loggia

Covered spaces provide shelter from summer rain.

Landscape architect Ron Holbrook transformed this downtown Toronto backyard with an all-weather seating area, sectional sofas surrounding an outdoor fireplace and wood shutters to keep the elements out. Quality finishes like Brazilian ipe wood, smooth Corian and Algonquin limestone lend a contemporary and timeless style to the dining area (right).

Watch a tour this backyard in our Online TV segment.
