This beautiful pavilion, designed by Keith Anderson, is the focal point of the European-garden section of a Colorado landscape. In the planting beds on either side, 'Winter Gem' boxwoods serve as the "bones" of the plantings while cockspur hawthorn trees provide colorful winter berries.
This formal garden with a two-story pavilion for entertaining is part of an extensive building and landscaping project by Cruickshank Remodeling. The homeowners had recently purchased the adjacent property which contained a mid century ranch house. After demolishing the structure, the yard was then graded and reconfigured into an upper and lower lawn and garden areas, taking advantage of the elevation change in the lot. The design goal was the creation of various entertainment spaces that can be viewed in our before and after visual tour.
An entertainment pavilion reflects the midcentury architecture of a Sarasota, Fla., home. The pool patio was transformed with the addition of the pavilion with an extended wall that incorporates built-in dining benches designed to match the home's modern architecture. The project by DWY Landscape Architects was a Florida chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects award winner.
This gorgeous pavilion welcomes guests into the one-acre private retreat. Exposed wood beams combine with a lantern-style light fixture draw the eye up, while stacked stone columns bring a rustic quality to the space.
This rustic farmhouse pool was placed in a more functional and aesthetically appropriate location, and raised twelve feet to maintain the sequential experience throughout the property. Built-in planters and potted arrangements were added as a buffer to soften the elevated height difference.
What was once the front yard entrance to a mid-century ranch house is now the site of a two story pavilion with a manicured lawn and formal garden. The pavilion adjoins the owner’s estate on the left while the far right side of the formal garden is where the driveway once existed from the previous home.
On the former site of the ranch house (now demolished) construction begins on the two-story pavilion. The lower level opens to the outdoor room and includes a half bath and a greenhouse. What you see here is the upper pavilion which includes a slate roof, copper gutters, rain chains and a limestone floor.
This custom pavilion sits gracefully on the back of this large Koi pond, shallow enough for kids to play in and deep enough for a private collection of Koi. Native granite boulders and marginal plant material enhances the natural setting while helping to maintain the clarity of the water.
