There is perhaps no greater way to terminate an axis than at an outdoor fireplace. The symmetry is further reinforced with twin urns and twin sofas
, and even the tall trees beyond are nearly twins. The exterior walls here are softened by lush plantings and ground cover. A stepped perimeter curb sets apart the perfectly flat stone paved terrace. A space like this is designed for retreat and respite from the outside world, and all major spaces of the home have access to it.
