Dining Space

A refined material palette modernizes this conventional 60′s ranch-home’s yard. Repetition of materials like stone, ipe and concrete combine beautifully to form a bold and contemporary garden.

Layered walls perform double duty as both sculpture and a way to define gathering spaces. Contrasting leaf textures and hues harmonize with the hardscape, and plant masses add their colorful statement to the canvas.

Could this type of stone be used without a concrete slab or does it require one?

The stone is bluestone, which comes in different sizes. You could spec a stone thicker than these and sand set them.

The wood is Ipe and it is stained by the homeowner, so I don't have that information handy.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Design Your Perfect Outdoor Kitchen
Choose seating that is flexible and can be moved around. Allowing guests to move to and from the dining and lounging areas creates a more casual, intimate environment. Install speakers around your entertaining areas to add to the ambiance.
Sheila Schmitz added this to Great Grill Setups Take the Party Outside
Another view reveals an outdoor lounge, kitchen and dining room that allow guests to wander over to wherever the action is.
