This sophisticated modern home, designed by Max Strang Architecture, includes multiple outdoor areas for relaxing and entertaining. Here, a covered patio is adjacent to an open air one that also features a pool.
Raised on a solid platform, an ethereal white pergola is dressed in long white flowing curtains. A black dining table and modern white chairs sit beneath the pergola for an airy outdoor dining experience.
This amazing home in Austin is a perfect showcase for imaginative architecture. Instead of doing the usual—letting the house fill the 50 by 150-foot single-family lot—the architects designed the residence to stretch along the length of the land. This allowed for a mix of different outdoor spaces that could be natural extensions off of individual rooms.
Glass sections in the home's exterior walls allow indoor light to travel out onto this beautiful back deck. Levels in the architecture create a pleasing look complementary to the sharp angles of the home and swimming pool. Outdoor furniture provides an area to relax poolside.
This lively backyard deck features natural wood planks and vibrant red-orange outdoor furniture, including an armchair and ottoman. A built-in rustic treehouse with a hammock and swing provides a fun spot for kids to explore.
This modern deck features natural wood planks that line the floor and wall, creating a minimalist look. A small outdoor kitchen features a stainless steel grill and counter space for quick food preparation, while nearby stairs lead straight to the hot tub area. Lush plants add a bit of liveliness throughout the space.
The pool house is alongside Bear’s Best golf course at the base of a mountain with views to the Las Vegas Strip. The site is split by a dramatic level change by a berm from the front to back of the site. The design fits into the berm, enabling a lower level that benefits from natural daylighting. The views culminate in a rooftop deck which offers unrestricted views to the mountains, course and valley below.
Light concrete and stainless steel create a soft contrast against the natural hues of the trees and plants surrounding this deck. Stained wood transitions to the natural landscaping. A waterfall structure flows down into a circular pool, complementing the cascading movement of the deck levels.
A modern fire pit lights up the night on this small, lovely, wood deck. As striking as that, a modern art installment -- featuring a painting and a wood surround -- echoes the stars above. Comfortable outdoor chairs and sofa provide a stellar spot to ponder the skies.
Finished in gray, this deck is the perfect spot for entertaining without distracting from the natural beauty of the outdoors. Black patio furniture provides a cozy, yet sophisticated spot for gathering over a great meal.
