What Houzz contributors are saying:
AFTER: Engle tucked an outdoor shower behind the garage as a rinse-off station. Its semiprivate location creates a feeling of seclusion, as does the path to reach it. Engle created a hierarchy of circulation through the path materials. The concrete path and back boardwalk easily move visitors from one point to another, whereas the granite boulders to the shower require more effort. This path is subordinate to the other two, and Engle explains that this obstacle heightens the drama of the shower area, as if one needs to be invited.
