The front of the home provides plenty of room for outdoor dining and entertaining, while providing easy access to the pool.
Poolside Indoor-Outdoor Living
The structure features two wings that allow for dual outdoor seating areas with wood trellised ceilings in matching wood tones. Each area creates a unique socializing environment — one features a low-slung outdoor sofa sectional and table for a group, while the other offers a small table and chair set, creates a more intimate conversation area situated a few steps away from a sparkling pool.
At the main entry, a sliding glass door and clerestory window create a glassy entryway that blends the boundary between indoors and outdoors. The underside of the courtyard roof is a warm cedar-lined finish that drops down into the entryway wall, visually bridging both spaces and drawing the eye inward. “Western Window Systems has a very fine profile. It was very important that you get the sense of this roof dropping into the backs of the hallway space,” says Alper.
Inside the house, a multi-slide glass door and cedar planks are the backdrop to the guest home’s outdoor dining area complete with ample seating and a built-in bar. The windows harness and reflect natural light, while the cedar anchors the indoor-outdoor transition.
