A glass-and-steel water trough that courses along the structure’s exterior heightens the connection to the surrounding natural elements. Tall grasses hugging the edge of the architecture are reflected in the clear water beautifully blending the space. The roof overhangs provides shade creating a comfortable, relaxing patio.
Connection with the natural surroundings is heightened by the addition of a glass-and-steel water trough that courses along the structure’s exterior. Modern pergolas butterfly over the patio adding the zen feel of the design. Tall grass creates an immediate transitional from the concrete patio flooring to the surrounding natural elements.
The water collection basin for the vanishing edge, usually a forgotten space, was instead revamped to create a visually appealing water feature that can be seen from the lower seating area in the vineyard. Designers used individual ledger pieces to create ledges for the water to dance over on its way to the lower collection basin.
An arc-shaped pool with a spa is built into the hillside, where cascading water gently rolls over the Misty Rose flagstone veneered pool wall, producing a calming effect. The infinity edge is designed to spill into a raised trough that doubles as a sitting area and water sculpture.
Previously, this pool was tiny and unspectacular and even off center in the yard, so designers renovated the space to create a spacious pool with a radius vanishing edge detail that would flow into a lower trough that was design to resemble a large fountain with scalloped walls that joined the radius vanishing edge detail. Then, designers brought in fire and water bowls to add drama to the space, creating the perfect poolside paradise.
