Sandstone Backsplash Gives Guest House a Beachy Feel
The design of this sandstone backsplash helps to bring a beachy feeling to the space. Since the guest house is host to many pool parties, the designers wanted the space to feel as if it were a home off the coast.
Textured Tile and Open Shelving in Pool House Galley Kitchen
The pool house kitchen often serves as a wet bar and food prep station for the family's pool parties, so the small galley kitchen has been decked out in Ann Sacks tile and custom shelves. The tile backsplash gives the room a textured feel, while the open shelving helps keep the modern look of the space.
Modern Living Room Incorporates the Outdoors in Its Design
The modern living room of this guest house is reminiscent of a beach locale, with its relaxed furnishings, rugged tables and natural fiber rugs. To incorporate the modern, industrial design of the space, metal light fixtures were added to maintain the integrity of the design while helping to light the room. A sliding barn door cleverly conceals the entertainment center when it's not in use, and a Nano door opens poolside to open onto the patio where polished concrete floors continue out into the pool area help to make the seamless transition from indoor to outdoor.
Sliding Barn Door Hides Entertainment Center in Modern Pool House
The emphasis of this design is on the access to the pool, so designers installed a sliding barn door created from Oregon reclaimed lumber to hide the entertainment center when it is not in use. The wood and metal of this apparatus complement the industrial style the family desired.
Small Galley Kitchen Opens Onto Outdoor Sitting Area
A small galley kitchen that is often used for a wet bar during the family's frequent pool parties leads from the interior of the pool house to the cozy sitting area that lies between the pool and the pool house. The concrete floors tie the space together, helping the transition from indoor to outdoor become a seamless one.
Modern Roofline, Windows Offer Contrast to Natural Tones of Property
Sleek, modern rooflines and windows stand in sharp contrast to the earthiness of the front door surround and lush landscaping at this Eugene, Ore., home. A Japanese maple offers a pop of color against the gray exterior.
Modern, Industrial Home Surrounded by Lush Perimeter of Trees
Lush trees offer an earthy contrast to this modern, industrial style home. The trees were maintained during construction to comply with Eugene, Ore., codes which retire protection of certain trees on properties during construction.
Backyard Pool With Ipe Arbor, Creative Furniture & Fire Pit
An Ipe wood shade structure was attached to custom rolled steel columns and joists in this industrial-style backyard to create a unique arbor. Creative furniture and a fire pit add personality to the pool area.
Modern Industrial Backyard Retreat with a Water Feature
Antique limestone laid out in a geometric design and a steel pergola give this garden and relaxation spot a modern and industrial aesthetic. A round sofa offers a spot to lounge. Color comes form the cacti and foliage and flowering plants and the glass-tiled water feature. The pavers are intertwined with ground cover and stones.
For the Daniels Lane Residence, the client expressed a desire for a natural landscape. The vision was to create a place where the home was organically integrated into the landscape. LaGuardia started by using native plants that followed the color and texture of the home as well as the movement of the ocean, drawing it all together. Cape American Beach Grass and Red Fescue were used, which both move fluidly in the wind bringing water like elements to the dry land.
