purpose of this project was to provide a covered outdoor space connected
to the pool and serving as a family room. The space includes a
fireplace, exposed beamed ceiling and kitchenette.
The challenge was to properly integrate the freestanding structure with
the existing conditions of the property without looking like an
afterthought. The finishes were matched to the existing structure, which
was aligned with the existing home, which helps establish a relationship
of an edge to the property. A stone capped fire-pit acts as a connecting
device between the old and new living spaces. The richness of the wood
in the exposed ceiling creates a level of coziness to the space and the
lighting sets the mood. This room is now the most oft used of the home.
