What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Warm, Mid-Century Makeover
An unexpected Texas-limestone lined pool greets visitors in the front courtyard, right inside the entry.
And let's not forget water, an architectural element of the most ephemeral. Here we find three simple fountains in a travertine wall; the water's falling arc is as important as the trough ... if not more.
3. Reflect. Induce contemplation and “reflective consumption.”“Product designers are questioning not only ecological values, but also perceptual and emotional experiences that the unique materiality of products can deliver,” Strauss and Fuad-Luke state. They encourage designers to emphasize ephemeral beauty that reminds us that everything is transient and short-lived. Strauss and Fuad-Luke cite Icelander Katrin Svana Eythórsdóttir's biodegradable chandelier, made from highly reflective glucose droplets; it slowly disappears within months, "inviting its owner(s) to savor every moment of its existence," they say. Waterfalls, like this one in Texas, are another way to take a reflective approach.

Principle: Movement-Gets the viewer to move there eyes and look at the focal point and go along with the visual. As soon as you look at this picture your eyes go straight to the fountain. Then your eyes start to travel down as the water flows. This is movement in the visual. After this there is a reflection at the back and the viewers eyes travel with it.

Height of water fall would provide ample sound. Interestingly, such a sound is almost the same timber as traffic, so is a good design for sites with road noise.
