Contemporary Wavy Deck With Built-in Lounge and Peek-a-Boo Planter
Two types of benches have been built into this outdoor deck, one on a stone wall and lined with cushions. The other bench is made of the same wood as the deck and lifted up to create a rift filled with shrubs.
The luxury penthouse seen here features breath taking panoramic views of Seattle from forty stories up. The interior includes stunning quartz counters, stainless steel appliances and backlit mirrors all furthering the sleek sophistication of this buildings architecture.
A water feature draws the eye to the unique stone surround of this modern swimming pool, which features an elevated hot tub and sweeping city view. Ipe wood is used on the modern railing and surrounding deck.
Modern Half-Wall Creates Privacy for Front Entrance
A modern half-wall around the home's front entrance makes the front yard entertaining space semi-private and more functional, allowing the homeowners to make use of all their home's spaces, both indoor and out.
The homeowners wanted a backyard design that would blend into the desert surroundings rather than compete with it, so designers chose native plants like gray-green cacti and natural colored hardscape such as warm, caramel stones and pale, sun-bleached wood that would reflect the warm, desert tones to create the look.
Mod red planks on the floor of this rooftop deck set the stage for a streamlined, stylish space that invites hours of conversation while enjoying the sweeping view. A fun mix of seating includes a bench for dining and a bright blue modern lounge chair.
To keep the pool separate fro the walkway to the Zen Garden, designers added a simple, modern fence that runs halfway around the pool. The fence helps keep the space safe for kids, but doesn't obstruct the beautiful view from the pool.
With its many windows, the nighttime view of this Hyde Park home from the street gives off the impression that the home is glowing from the inside, highlighting the openness of the design-even from outside.
When the homeowner, a professional artist, moved into this home, the backyard space was visually unappealing and dysfunctional, so designers gave the yard a new look, maximizing the small space with sectional seating areas on both the hardscape and desert lounge areas, giving the homeowner a blank canvas to foster her creative inspiration.
