Small Condo Garden
The design objective was to create a usable outdoor room with strong lines drawn by interesting, natural materials. A simple, arched brush-stroke shape is repeated in the curve of the corrugated roof, spa handrail, and decorative window grill. The semi-circular steel element behind the spa is designed to support the bulky spa cover for ease of use. A polished, black granite table was installed on a custom fabricated steel base. The sky is reflected in the table top giving the appearance of a raised pool of water that mirrors the spa. The paving is colored-stained concrete and the pool plaster is black to lend a sense of contemplative depth. The ipe wood and steel furniture pieces were designed to repeat the graceful shapes of the architectural elements.
