In conjunction with the design and construction of a new wing to this 1940s classic ranch house, a series of outdoor garden spaces were developed with a pool house, pool, and spa area composing the retreat. A sunken lawn, bordered by hedges and perennials is an open field for games.
The pool house, clad in ship-lap wood boards, is framed with a scissor truss roof structure, and includes a fireplace, powder room, and pool storage area. A brick floor and board and batten interior walls complete the composition.
Espaliered fruit trees and a vegetable garden are components of the children's play area. Simple combinations of whites and greens compose the garden palette.
