This wooded retreat originally started as a small pool design but grew into an encompassing project that includes a L-shaped pool, hot tub, fire feature, water feature and raised deck with a pergola. With so many distinct areas, the goal was to create a cohesive design that unified the entire space yet maintained the naturalistic environment. An earthy palette combines with repetition of key materials, like weathering steel, ipe wood and stone.
