A challenging sloped site was transformed into a multi-level entertainment space that showcases the beauty and versatility of stone.
On the upper terrace, concrete and stacked bluestone walls embrace a cabana and a spa that flows over into the pool below. A naturalistic creek runs through the landscape, ending in a pond that hems an outdoor kitchen and lounge on the lower terrace. The steady murmur of running water provides a soothing accompaniment and adds to the welcoming space. Stone slab steps follow the path of the creek to provide a grand entrance at the fire pit and lounge. Seatwalls throughout the earth-toned landscape provide resting spots for impromptu gatherings.
