To create a focal point to blend with the Spanish style home but still leave the view open to the pasture behind was a challenge. Centered on the backyard entrance from the home the golden stucco arches with rainfalls created the solution. The yard slope created multiple opportunities. Steps transition the sight line down to a flush vanishing edge spa. A Bridge of Travertine allows access over the pool to the spa. The spa tile blends with the water color. Symmetrical curves flank the spa to allow transition around the cabana and the slide. Low ground cover softens the upper terrace and adds color. A finger ledge of Travertine or benches provide many resting places around the pool. The precast trim on the arches matches the detail on the home as well as the stucco finish and color. The Scabos Travertine field is accented with a square of glass used from the spa and provides great backdrop for the Lions Heads. The stone veneer matches the fireplace stone but decided on a more tailored pattern for the pool and firepit. Each of the rain falls are individually controlled to create sound from gentle rain to a strong shower. This space creates a space of tranquility and peace that is enjoyed everyday.
During the photoshoot a storm rolled in and soaked us. The rain stopped right at sunset and the clouds added to the great project pictures.
