This project provided the unique opportunity of a blank slate. Starting fresh with a complete overhaul of the yard, the client desired clean lines and a modern style. Entertainment was a big factor in this space, extending as many elements of the inside outdoors as possible. While space was not an issue on this property, keeping the design feeling private and connected to the house and surrounding area proved to be the main challenge of this design. The solution was to carry the living space out into the yard with crisp lines and a cabana to anchor the pool. The layout and symmetry of these living spaces provides great views whenever you are in the yard. The pool area features natural stone coping and an IPE boardwalk that ties into the wood on the house.
The pool house includes both a covered bathroom and an outdoor shower. Details like oversized slab stepping stones and natural boulders make the space feel modern but natural. The pool house overhang with a finished ceiling is a perfect place to sit around the pool out of the sun. Transitioning from the pool to the deck, a large slab landing leads to a composite deck and structure. Wide stairs and a large structured dining area compliment the scale of the house. With a space for lounging and a place for dining conveniently close to the house, the client has the optimal spot for entertaining. The design is completed with a simple but modern planting palette including boxwood, hydrangea and tall grasses.
