the south side of the house with pool. a two-tiered patio allows multiple access and view points to the house and pool. by having the upper floor recessed, it creates privacy for the bedrooms on the upper floor and provide deck spaces at the same time.
the back patio with direct access to the living and dining rooms. the built-in outdoor fire pit looks like a great place to hang out. the patio is covered but not with a typical wood trellis. in keeping with the commercial/steel and concrete material palette of the house, the patio is protected by a glass roof supported by metal web. the metal web also acts as a place for the vie to grow on for further shading by leaves during the summer moths. i can just see it : grapes hanging down from the vines just right for the picking and this being right in the back of the house – genius! such a clever idea and now the homeowners can be outdoors even when it is raining and keep dry while still being able to enjoy some natural light, which we sure beats sitting inside behind the window.
the wine cellar has am exposed rock face wall. it almost feels like you are outside when in this room, thanks to the rock wall which will also keep the room cool , and naturally is excellent environment for storing wine.
