Luxurious Backyard With Fire Pit and Infinity Pool
A Gabion bowl was used for a fire pit feature in this luxurious backyard, as seen on The Outdoor Room by Jamie Durie. The fire pit deck is sunk below the height of the adjacent infinity pool so that the benches are level to the pool.
Recessed lighting and LEDs in the pool illuminate this outdoor space for use into the evening. An infinity-edge both complements the home's modern design and showcases the natural beauty of the landscape.
The view of the home from the backyard shows off the clean lines and open feel of the architecture. Modern landscaping surrounds a swimming pool that's softly lit for an evening swim. Lounge chairs are positioned at one end of the pool, while a ground-level fire pit adds warmth to the modern design at the other.
This home—and especially its landscaping—is a fascinating mix of Southwestern meets modern. Metal beams and concrete retaining walls pair with sandy-colored gravel and feathery grasses for a look that's minimalist yet inviting.
This San Francisco-area street slopes down to a modern wood and glass home that's ideally suited to its site. The wood facade incorporates elements of the rugged terrain, while a stepped design takes maximum advantage of the unique lot.
