No upscale outdoor entertaining area should be without a built in bbq island also referred to as an outdoor kitchen as long as there is more than just a grill.
This outdoor kitchen is situated adjacent to an expansive seating area under a ramada with city light views.
The grill has a granite slab counter top, grill, side burner, drawers, sink, refrigerator and a trash compactor.
This outdoor "room" was designed as a large 16 foot diameter circle with the lines of the circle reflected in the iron railing, the steps down and the outer curved edge of the bbq island. Note the bbq task lighting from the downlights attached to the upper part of the ramada.
Barstool seating was accommodated using the columns supporting granite counter space for space efficiency.
