Known for transforming the lives and living spaces of others, celebrity designer Bobby Berk decided to do what he does best at his own firm’s home-based headquarters in Southern California. The beloved design guru from the Netflix series “Queer Eye” left no stone – or paver – unturned in the dramatic transformation of the “sad and boring” backyard into a multi-level outdoor masterpiece.

Equal parts work and play, the space is designed for inspiration and productivity as well as entertaining and rejuvenation. “It may be the ‘office house,’ but this is the house that I have all my friends over to for dinner parties,” the designer noted in an article about the project published by Domino magazine.

Featured throughout the ultra-luxe living area are Trex products that add to the style, durability and sustainability of the unique outdoor space.

A Place for Brainstorms and BBQs

Located off the headquarters’ conference room is a welcoming dining area that serves as the focal point of the backyard. A popular spot for the Bobby Berk team to assemble for group brainstorms and after-work cocktails, the space is outfitted with everything needed for al fresco entertaining, including a fully appointed outdoor kitchen and a table large enough for 10. For the luxurious outdoor kitchen, Berk chose sleek black and walnut stainless-steel cabinets from the Trex® Outdoor Kitchens collection and topped them with stunning black stone countertops to create a seamlessly integrated chef-quality food prep station and outdoor bar.

By choosing Trex Outdoor Kitchens, Berk and his team had the freedom to get creative with their design. Featuring dozens of cabinet styles in hundreds of sizes and finishes, this collection of modular components can be customized to accommodate virtually any kitchen layout. And just like the rest of the high-performance Trex product portfolio, the ultra-durable cabinets are built to withstand even the harshest of outdoor elements while requiring minimal maintenance.

A Moment of Sweet, Shady Serenity

Set along L.A.’s iconic Wisdom Tree hike path, Bobby Berk Headquarters is shrouded in nature. Tucked up on a hill among the trees and greenery you’ll find a shaded retreat courtesy of a custom Trex® Outdoor Pergola. The sturdy and stylish jet black aluminum structure is softened by custom ivory curtains to create a welcome respite from the California sun and an ideal spot to watch the sun set.

Offered in a variety of standard models as well as custom shapes and sizes, Trex Pergola kits are designed to provide architectural interest as well as the perfect amount of shade and privacy. The low-maintenance structures can be outfitted with canopies, shade panels, lighting, curtains, heaters or fans to create the outdoor retreat of your dreams.

This backyard makeover is just one part of a whole-house renovation being done at Bobby Berk Headquarters. To catch up on the complete journey, visit BobbyBerk.com.
