What Houzz contributors are saying:

A closeup of the long water feature from the living pavilion makes its westward directionality clear. It also indicates how the pool splits this portion of the courtyard into two, and how the stilts supporting the roof are an important part of the design, as we'll see. The simple paving, perpendicular to the pool, links the two buildings even as the linear pool separates them.
Debra Prinzing added this to Reflecting Pools as Liquid Assets
Serene and sublime, this sleek, contemporary pool enlivens a minimalistic outdoor space. Because it is elevated, it becomes part pool, part sculpture. No splashing allowed.
