The key was to see the sunken firepit from the front door, living room, and both inside/outside kitchen areas as The focal point. The pool had to be more fluid in shape to match the interior artwork and not a rectangular sterile box. Second, fire pit had to be round so everyone faced each other. Third, with the walkway, flush spa (close to the Master) and tanning lining up on the home architecture the pool was too small for general activity. Also, a children requested slide would not visually or functionally work. The vanishing edge basin was enlarged to create more space for family activity and the top basin for hanging out. The slide profile was minimized and incorporated with the steps going down to the yard. White Sandblasted Marble pavers blended with the white stucco home and were used on the porches and steps also. Equipment sets were set on 2 levels to maximize space and better hydraulics. Synthetic turf on the upper terrace was for games and table area with large gatherings. This fluid geometry fit both the inside, outside and all the dreams of this family.
