Clean Lines, Water Feature Comprise Courtyard
Smooth stone pavers guide visitors into the home's courtyard, where water and a planted tree create a calming, earthy setting. Sliding glass doors open the home's interior to the outdoors and so encourage a sense of flow.
The owners of this Spanish Colonial wanted a courtyard design that would match the integrity of the home's exterior design, but they wanted to make sure it was fresh and modern. In order to achieve this goal, designers anchored the courtyard design around the pool, the shape of which is traditional, but the black bottom brings in the modern character these homeowners were looking for.
Three Seasons Entertaining Space in Modern Spanish Colonial Courtyard
To give the homeowners a more versatile courtyard space, designers added a sitting area next to a fireplace, adding a three seasons patio for entertaining. Bright red cushions and pillows in this area pop against the neutral colors that traditionally adorn Spanish Colonial homes, bringing in the modern touch that the homeowners love.
A striking sculpture makes a contemporary statement in the courtyard of this modern desert home. The covered pavilion blends the indoors and out with comfortable furnishings, a chic bar and dining area, creating the perfect spot to entertain.
Comprised of clean lines and encircled by smooth stones, this modern courtyard feels zen and invites quiet reflection. Small trees layer the landscape as well, giving the space a touch of greenery and shade.
Overhead, two metal beams run parallel to each other and create a clear line of sight from the courtyard to the home's interior. Subsequently, the two living spaces feel connected, which makes the property seem larger and more open.
Metallic accents, glass railings and rock beds greet those who visit this modern home located in the Southern California community of Corona del Mar. Clean lines are found in the hardscape, windows and roofline. Illuminated trees gives the space an elegant feel.
To separate the home's front entrance from the highway, designers built concrete walls to frame a small courtyard, using polygal and steel panels to create a bit of transparency on the side of the carport and as a small accent on the street side. Now, the entry circulation comes parallel to the driveway on the street side with bright red doors which match the front door and visually call visitors and clarify the entry sequence.
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.
