The house has great lines that were accentuated by building off and extending these into the outdoor space. Incorporating these tie in’s helps to create open connections and balance. The house also has a very well-balanced material pallet we didn’t want to disrupt; therefore, we limited the introduction additional materials, including minimizing the number of plant species.
Extending Great Lines
We are able achieve these design goals in a couple of different ways. By extending the existing tile front walk an exaggerated axis that accentuates this feature and strengthens the connection of the new pool deck and the house is created. We include other ornamental elements replicating the existing material pallet.
Planters, storage and the pool equipment screen are composed of materials that match materials already included house. Weathering steel planters are incorporated to match existing foundation planters, and a polished grey concrete coping and pool deck compliment the smooth finished white stucco of the house. The plant pallet is also limited, and species are selected with the site’s new amenities in mind creating well defined spaces, while maintaining the open and connected feel.
Bold features requested by the client are incorporated to set his pool apart. A 24’ long fire feature with electronic ignitions in a bed of white glass, and 5 LED laminars are included. Finally, An all-white glass mosaic tile interior finish really sets the pool off.
Balance, flow, and connection work together to create a space that looks as if it was originally built with the house.
The final product is a space that fit the client’s needs and personality.
