This family wanted a natural, wilderness-style backyard complete with natural stone fire pit, a spa, a freeform swimming pool and waterfall. Their backyard now looks like a mountain resort, complete with deer grazing on the hill. The multi-level waterfall splits into several spillways as it cascades toward the swimming pool. A cast concrete bridge stamped to look like wood planks crosses over the lap pool. Colorful planting pockets soften the hardscaped areas.
Situated against the side of the house and running the entire length of the residence is this sleek pool concept designed by Lake Flato Architects that reflects the intimacy of the water canals of Venice.
This organically shaped pool is the central feature in a tropical backyard. Key elements include a suspended bridge, artificial tree with rope swing, waterfall, and artificial turf throughout the space.
A bridge with glass sides offers a unique view of the infinity pool below and is an interesting architectural addition to this luxurious L.A. home. The extensive use of glass adds to the home's open, contemporary vibe, which is expressed in every room of the house.
