Rear yard backed up to other homes above. Use of small round pieces of wood and rusted metal over a png banco solved the problem creatively. Fireplace adds interest.

Visible from the kitchen and guest bed rooms, the third primary exterior space is a “morning patio” located on the east side of the house. Broad and finished in the ubiquitous concrete grid pattern, this private area repeats the motif seen throughout the exterior of large bowls placed on trapezoidal pedestals and planted with agaves. It’s another space in which the landscape rises above a series of low walls,but in this case, the sweep of those walls offers a curvilinear geometry that contrasts with the deck’s grid pattern. The star of this space is a curved and ascending rusted-steel wall in the form of a half spiral. Its presence discretely divides the space, lending the guest room patio a sense of privacy from the public breakfast patio. On the guest patio side, the steel wall encompasses a small waterfeature in which a delicate plume of water rises just a couple of inches above the water’s surface to provide a tranquil, trickling sound that conjures feelings of serenity in the calm, quiet space. The sweeping wall of corten steel also has a continuous six inch wide vertical cleft that allows an axial glimpse of the plume from the public side and, from the opposite angle, a sliver view through to the public space beyond. A cantilevered steel sluice spills from the cleft into a pebble filled reflecting bowl that overflows yet again into a final pebble filled basin set only one inch below deck level. At night, the plume, lower basin and impact zone of the sluiceway are all lit from beneath the water's surface, projecting a dancing light onto the graceful arch of the corten steel room divider. michaelwoodall.com

Pergolas covering backyard patios create a perfect space to install a Danver Stainless Outdoor Kitchen. The mixture of a natural wood Pergola and the beautiful stainless cabinetry by Danver contrast nicely.

Nestled into the quiet middle of a block in the historic center of the beautiful colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, this 4,500 square foot courtyard home is accessed through lush gardens with trickling fountains and a luminous lap-pool. The living, dining, kitchen, library and master suite on the ground floor open onto a series of plant filled patios that flood each space with light that changes throughout the day. Elliptical domes and hewn wooden beams sculpt the ceilings, reflecting soft colors onto curving walls. A long, narrow stairway wrapped with windows and skylights is a serene connection to the second floor ''Moroccan' inspired suite with domed fireplace and hand-sculpted tub, and "French Country" inspired suite with a sunny balcony and oval shower. A curving bridge flies through the high living room with sparkling glass railings and overlooks onto sensuously shaped built in sofas. At the third floor windows wrap every space with balconies, light and views, linking indoors to the distant mountains, the morning sun and the bubbling jacuzzi. At the rooftop terrace domes and chimneys join the cozy seating for intimate gatherings.
