Backyard Network produces objects and structures for homes, gardens, cafes and restaurants.
Our design process focuses on finding aesthetic, durable and functional solutions to the challenge of integrating living systems into homes and built environments. The goal is to provide sustainable and comfortable habitat not only for people, but for all the organisms and living systems with which we share our world.
Accordingly, you will find attention devoted to durability, self sufficiency, non-toxicity, water retention and drainage, airflow, temperature stability and nutrition.
I try wherever possible to source and repurpose timbers, fittings and other materials that would otherwise be discarded or sent to landfill.
