To maximize the views from inside the house, the majority of the outdoor living space was placed on the street-side front yard. A pool was a must for the clients. The existing 60-year old Dragon Tree on site was carefully protected throughout construction and formed the inspiration around which the house and garden were designed. The tree shaped the garden and planting palette, while providing the depth and age a new home may lack.
Woven armchairs overlook the sleek swimming pool, which is surrounded by a streamlined patio. Contemporary lounge chairs and oversized armchairs provide the perfect spots to relax, while a funky sculpture adds a touch of color to the space.
The minimalist swimming pool features a shallow sundeck, perfect for relaxing in the pool and under the large patio umbrella. The home opens up to the outdoors to create a blended space that's perfect for entertaining.
This minimal open-floor plan home required a garden that reflected the owners’ love of simple clean lines, open views and a feeling of space. The hardscape was designed with a conservative use of materials to create the illusion of space with the planting used in a more architectural way to mimic the interior of the house.

The hardscape was designed with a conservative use of materials to create the illusion of space with the planting used in a more architectural way to mimic the interior of the house. Privacy was also very important but it needed to be done in keeping with the aesthetic of the property maintaining the clean lines and open spaces.
Keeping in tone with the minimal open-floor plan home, the swimming pool is streamlined and features a clean, white patio deck. Sleek lounge chairs sit perfectly on the sun deck, where guests can relax in the pool and in the shade.
Lighting can make a huge difference to the look of an outside space. Bistro lights in the oak tree, illuminated containers and landscape lights help create a romantic and fun atmosphere. The pergola was designed to have decorative privacy screens in between the posts and is lit with decorative sconces.
The deep blue ripples of a stunning infinity-edge pool lead the eye to a breathtaking vista of mountain and valley in Omao, a community on Kauai's sunny south side. This idyllic backyard also features a 12-foot hot tub, flowering gardens and an outdoor kitchen.
