Private Residence Newport Coast, CA

This contemporary design offers rustic materials and clean lines. Based on centerlines of the house specimen trees were craned in place to create lush outdoor rooms for entertaining. A fireplace, sports bar, dinning area, pool and spa were designed in this small backyard. The challenge was to fit all this in a way that made sense to yard in terms of scale but more importantly blending the softscape and hardscape to be seamless throughout. Planted pottery, planted joints and trees were designed in such a way that would allow access and usability of the space but also soften hard edges.
