BLUM RESIDENCE LANDSCAPE
A typical grass rear yard was transformed into a place for both entertaining and meditation.
These conflicting functions were resolved by creating two areas separated by a change in level. A concrete water pond was placed at this transition. The pond edge brings the soothing sound of falling water into the backyard. Steps alongside the pond lead to a stone path taking one to the meditation area at the rear of the yard. A white ceiling adjacent to the house wraps around and defines the entertaining area. A built-in grill and long seating counter define one end of this area.
