Design Solutions For Outdoor Space?

Good Questions

Q: I am in desperate need of advice to help design an outdoor space for my new apartment.

The problems:

  • My apartment door doesn't directly connect to the space I have (the door in the photo leads to storage for the entire building).
  • The space that's available is awkward and narrow.
  • There's an ugly AC unit in the way.

I'm looking to create a space that is:

  • Neutral in colour and accents (we are quiet, earthy people).
  • Eco-friendly.
  • Not too invasive (i.e. holes all over and major installations).
  • Roomy enough for two relaxing chairs and a small side table.
  • Also, has a sense of privacy.

PLEASE help me create a space outdoors to enjoy what little summer I have here in Canada. Thank you!
