A raised spa is further enhanced with natural stone boulders, fire elements, a flagstone rock accent wall and raised planters. The fire elements illuminate the pool area and create a dramatic night setting for this backyard space. A waterfall adds visual interest for swimmers.
Turn your own backyard into a Zen paradise with a little elbow grease or, in this case, a great landscape architect. The look is accomplished with plants like Japanese maple, dogwoods, azaleas, ornamental grass and artfully placed rocks.
Fieldwork Design & Architecture transform the pool room into a zen retreat by ensconcing the room, floor to ceiling, in Western Red Cedar and slate tile. The sliding glass doors are replaced with a 32-foot wide single sliding door to create a seamless portal to the verdant outdoors. An unfinished utility area is converted into a wine cellar and changing room.
Though the koi pond and reflection area are located at the center of the lowest level of this modern Dallas home, the creative layout of the second level allows natural light in, adding to the serenity and drama of the space.
The homeowner desired to add a forest element to his otherwise modern home, so designers added a greenscape with perimeter screening to help keep the rooftop as private as possible. Bold hued, stylish furniture was chosen for this space to add comfort as well as aesthetic, while designers used white paving to reflect the sunlight and help keep heat off the rooftop terrace.
Large slabs of stone lead from the deck to a pavilion, which was designed to be a sanctuary where the homeowners can relax, recharge and focus their thoughts. This serene outdoor space was also intended to be a home and food source for various pollinators.
