Originally, this historic home's backyard contained a swimming pool that was damaged beyond repair, so after filling in the pool, homeowners wanted a fresh, new look. Designers helped the homeowners come up with a color concept, and began work on their New Modern design by defining entertainment spaces. In one corner, a custom barbecue pit with a concrete island makes the space perfect for grilling. In another, an intimate conversation corner welcomes guests. A putting green is the focal point of the space, but the central living space is this elegant sitting area created from sustainable furniture that matches the couple's eco-friendly lifestyle.
Entertaining was the homeowners' main focus when discussing their redesigned home, so designers made sure to create spaces that fit the homeowners' social lifestyle. The kitchen is no exception.

With entry points to the outdoor spaces as well as the newly created built-in bar connecting the kitchen to the living room, this room is the central hub for the couple's entertainment focused home-no matter which space in which they choose to meet their guests.
