This project is a backyard oasis designed for relaxation and entertaining. The design includes a double garage, pool, deck, pergola and gardens. A once overlooked backyard merges surprising design with versatile outdoor entertaining space.

A Backyard Oasis Designed for Relaxation and Entertaining

The driveway’s gradual angle became a departure point for all subsequent design decisions. Because the house itself is blocky and minimalist, a design was sketched out for the backyard in which everything, the pool, deck, pergola and gardens, were placed on a different axis than the house. The angling acted as a counterpoint, and allowed for a more natural flow. Even the carport’s pitched roof was shifted so that one side overhung the other.
