The shed-style art studio structure has two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows to maximize the natural light. Concrete pavers with Mexican pebble joints surround the building for a clean, polished look.
This backyard art studio is designed as a contemporary work space outside of the main residence and paired with a functional and beautiful low-water landscape with clean lines to match. The studio features sliding glass doors and clerestory windows to maximize natural light and is surrounded by sleek concrete pavers and Mexican pebble joints.
A giant fish tank makes a stunning focal point, where the grand rear terrace steps down onto an expansive lawn. Not only does it provide a useful transition for the grade change, but it also bridges the home’s interior with the outdoors. The lit tank, with its hand-painted tiles and colorful koi, provides a whimsical dash to an otherwise muted landscape — and nods to the homeowner’s impressive collection of '60s Pop Art inside.
Backyard With Pool, Lounge Chairs, Outdoor Umbrellas and Fire Pit
The patio view from this midcentury modern home is stunning: A pool in the distance is lined with lounge chairs for sunning and surrounded by the endemic trees of the region for privacy. Near to the home, an outdoor dining table and living area provide ample space for entertaining, and a fire pit adds warmth and pizzazz.

Inviting Outdoor Living Space Complete With Backyard Art Studio
The shed-style art studio has two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows to maximize the natural light entering the space.
