Opening onto a preserved open space, this newly constructed site in Poway offers spectacular views for the owners. With a blank slate, they desired to create a outdoor environment where their young family could relax, explore and entertain.
Outdoor learning areas abutting the open space will allow their young child to interact & explore the natural environment with active and passive activities. These include:
- an arbor with a swing
- sunken trampoline
- colored stepping stones
- covered play space
- appropriately sized lawn area for active play
- as well as concrete paths to create a cycling opportunities
Other elements of the design consist of:
- a covered outdoor kitchen area with grill, sink and bar seating conveniently located adjacent to the house
- a large outdoor dining area sheltered by an arbor with a water fountain as a focal point
- a relaxing firepit area with Adirondack chairs which take advantage of the views of the open space
- natural boulders and rock filled bioswales blend the yard into the adjacent natural areas, while board-formed concrete and corten steel add a seamless modern touch
- ample seating is created with seat walls surrounding the entertaining areas and relaxing nooks filled with comfortable chairs and sofas
- a future putting green is also in the plan for additional recreational opportunities
