Sensory Retreat

Sensory Retreat

Challenges

The clients desired a space that appealed to the senses, including water and fire elements, a shaded lounging area, an outdoor kitchen, dining space, a dog run, and screening - all in a modest space anchored with unsightly utilities.

Opportunities & Solutions

We constructed a masonry/trellis screening structure  with an integrated bench to hide the utilities. Stone and wood materials were incorporated into the kitchen and pergola to unify the space. The grill island with attached custom trellis provides privacy from neighbors and acts as a bookend for the west property line. The raised terrace with complete sunshade has commanding views of the striking integrated fire and waterfall feature.
