This area is part of an indoor/outdoor floor plan and connects to the home's interiors via sliding glass doors. Retractable screens are built into the lanai. When lowered, the screens not only protect the area from bugs, they deflect solar glare and can hold up to 90 % of the homes conditioned or heated air in this outside space.
An outdoor living room features a mix of design elements, from the reclaimed woods on the coffee table and ceiling beams to the clean, contemporary lines of the woven and upholstered seating. The space is sited to take advantage of the sweeping coastal views, and it also opens to the indoors via a wide retractable glass wall that slides into a pocket door. Traditional lanterns light the space, giving a nod to the Mediterranean architecture.
