Artful + Environment
Design intent was to add a dynamic outdoor living space that worked with the natural beauty of the existing hilltop slope. The pool fountain wall provided a clean transition from the higher mountain slope. A reverse Lautner edge maintained ample pool area while achieving strategic overflowing edges to create a seamless connection to the travertine hardscape and planting areas. Fire features were added to enhance the drama in the overall design. A full outdoor kitchen and fireplace were adorned with natural stone veneer to coordinate with the indigenous rock. We created a covered elevated perch to be enjoyed year-round and to take advantage of the canyon sunset and city lights. Sculptural accents infused with colorful succulents complete this retreat.
