Redondo Beach Seaside Spa

Creating a visual continuation of the home's interior, this project successfully extends the living space into the narrow backyard. Every square inch of this compact yard is utilized for relaxing, swimming in the large perimeter overflow, infinity edge spa, dining, and active play in the lower ping-pong area. Classic neutral travertine paving and smooth stucco allow for pops of color in pots and plants, and a feeling of tranquility. Limestone countertops with chiseled edges lend classic elegance to the built-in-barbecue counter. A firepit is centered off the family room French doors, inviting people outdoors to the L-shaped seating area under the Swan Hill Olive tree.
