Monte Sereno #1

This backyard has a dramatic view that sweeps down the slope two hundred feet through oak, eucalyptus and fir woodlands but offered very little in the way of level space for development just outside the back door. Undeterred, the owners objective was to build a sanctuary in the midst of Silicon Valley to swim, sun, cook and entertain. Our solution: a free form infinite edge pool that structurally retains the slope and increased the usable yard. Now, the owners and their guests enjoy it all. At dusk, the fire & water urns flanking the pool’s vanishing edge frame the fabulous view and add an exotic touch.
