Some questionable points being made here? 40 years of arranging houses & gardens to benefit from a personal 'inside outside' philosophy has been assisted by ever wider fenestration possibilities & greatly improved insulation. Bi-folds are liberating although sliding doors are still fine. The placing of dining tables blocking the view through these crafted glazed openings often suggests poor design thinking. Sunken door thresholds are indeed crucial but a gentle step down to a sympathetic non-identical patio surface is no deal breaker. Why the faux pressure to limit choice to uninspiring & somewhat artificial porcelain surfaces? The accompanying images of timber floors used with stone terraces seem more in tune with nature.

A straight bank of rising steps transitioning between levels across the width of a town garden can be improved when formed as an inviting concave auditorium feature, creating spaciousness & doubling as seating. Nature offers the widest variety of leaf shapes & plant forms to accent, cover, creep & ramble along side returns & boundaries, where counterpoint stimulates & inspires. Indoor plants are fun but need thought to avoid mealy bug, scale, whitefly & numerous other infestations in today's hermetically sealed homes. These ever higher all enclosing boundary fences, using precious hardwoods, come at a cost. Normal height urban fences not only 'comply' but often allow greater use of the effect of borrowed scenery' from ones surroundings, where treated softwood battens are durable without costing the planet. Let's have more focus on a wider range of examples of 'inside outside' design.
