Spa Oasis midcentury pool

Spa Oasis

This mid-century house and garden went through an extensive remodel. A raised lap pool with a water fall is the main feature of the back yard. The raised edge works as a seat wall and helps mitigate the height of the retaining walls behind the pool. The dark concrete walls frame a dynamic relationship between a triangular wood deck and lawn on either side of the pool. The deck is accessible by stepping stones over the pool. To the side of the house an outdoor shower with a tile mosaic back wall provides a focal point from the pool deck.
