1970s Contemporary Remodel
Our clients (who are architects) requested an indoor-outdoor experience that would extend the living area with an outdoor room. However, after an exciting career opportunity required them to relocate and put their home on the market, we went back to the drawing board to quickly redesign this small, angular outdoor space to complement their late 1970s soft-contemporary home. This was accomplished with a stunning, but simple patio, patterned with linear score joints which step down to a large gravel seating area and firepit for entertaining. Pavers connect the space to the driveway with the same pattern. We also added an enlarged gravel courtyard off the kitchen. Planting is very textural to provide year-round interest.
