Pool decking becomes the countertop as it flows into the pool house. A bench spans the width of the pool. The three arches house both screens and shutters. To deal with drainage into the building, there's a strip drain system along the perimeter of the floor. Water drains by gravity into the landscape on the north side of the pool house. The sunken design creates challenges but it unifies the pool and indoor areas seamlessly.
One of the home's delightful outdoor spaces is this sunken patio. The patio itself is stone, carefully constructed to blend harmoniously into the setting. Over the dining area, vines climb up and around a steel arbor to make a lush canopy.
Stone columns carry that Mediterranean feel into the living room. Here, a cushioned chaise and leather ottoman invite the owners to put their feet up, while a table and chairs allow for a quick game of chess.
This small space living room is a couple of steps down from the kitchen. The sunken family room visually expands the space.The wall art and tall potted plants make the room look proportional, while a colorful mix of patterns in the upholstery and throw pillows provide balance to the small space.
Fabulous and fun this sunken living room area has a style and class all of it's own!

A blue, sectional provides plenty of cozy seating in the step-down living space, while teal, orange and white pillows add pops of color. To soften the tile floor, a teal and brown rug adds bold comfort to the space.
A sunken poolhouse provides a focal point for the swimming area. The sunken design unites the various activities, so that whether in the water or on dry land, participants feel connected to what's happening. The sunken building also offers an unusual perspective of the surrounding landscape.
