The owners of this small urban property wanted to create an outdoor
entertainment area for friends and family which had the feel of an Adirondack
summer home. The pergola creates a backdrop and sense of intimacy for the
seating area at the deep end of the pool. The lighted water sheers in the wall
not only offer a dramatic visual affect, they also help to drown out the noise of
the city environment. The brick and dark beams used on the new structures tie
back to the existing architectural elements of the home. A crushed gravel
surface, granite firepit, and natural landscaping reinforce the Adirondack feel
they desired.

At the rear of this home, walls of windows open to sweeping panoramic views of
a gorgeous Indian Coast natural stone tile patio surrounding a 20 x 65 ft. pool. A
vertical segmental wall system topped with an aluminum fence created a
usable green space by accommodating a 12 ft. grade change within a short
run to the property line. Outdoor lighting delivers ambiance and security while
highlighting the hardscape and landscape features. A reclaimed barn wood
gazebo provides a gathering place for watching movies or waiting for a rain
storm to pass. Natural boulders surround the sunken firepit area and provide for
extra seating.

This client wanted an outdoor entertainment area which flowed out the back
of the house and meshed with the existing patio. Everything was designed with
the uphill slope and existing wooded area in mind. Outcropping stone provides
a natural style and creates the stairs to transition to the upper seating area. The
seating area creates a nice space for sunbathing or watching the children play
in the pool. A landscape mound was created to prevent an existing creek from
overflowing into the pool. Custom Sandstone coping around the spa and pool
accentuate the elegant, yet natural feel.
