Formatted abstract
Owen and Vokes explore the potential of the suburban backyard in "two rather different outdoor rooms, which both extend the interior and gather in their suburban surrounds.

This article focuses on two projects, carried out simultaneously for two growing families in suburban Brisbane, Queensland, by architectural firm Owen and Vokes, presenting a multivalent approach to the backyard. Both projects seek to adapt a pre-modern spatial typology to a contemporary mode of living, significantly altering existing patterns of public and private space.
