This outdoor living room features excellent use of proportion and scale. The height and depth of the visually floating wood structure are related, with each section in equal proportion to the other. The wood wall section is also about two-thirds the height of the white stucco courtyard wall — a pleasing ratio. The U-shape bench embraces a fire table that fits into the opening like a perfect puzzle piece. Finally, the wide wood planks repeat the scale of the diagonally laid wood decking — a nice contrast.
