Swimming Pool and Garden
For this fairly tight lot with views of Long Island Sound, the owner asked us to design a swimming pool and hot tub, landscaping and an area for outdoor entertaining. Because of the slope of the property and its long narrow profile, we situated the main seating area at the highest point under a pergola, and created a waterfall flowing down from the hot tub to the swimming pool. At the top, an outdoor wet bar and barbecue are adjacent to the pergola. At the bottom, another seating area flanks the pool and wooden gates lead to a garden overlooking the sound.
