Balance is the key ingredient to this courtyard pool featuring an offset design with raised spa and planters. Positioning the pool on one side of the square space creates an open feel along the arcade allowing for spacious deck areas. The pool offset responds to the centerline of the architectural alcove providing a focal point when seated at the water bench. A raised spa is located adjacent to the loggia under the tile roof allowing for all weather use. Minimal planting is contained within the raised stucco planters providing vertical dimension and permanent seating. Brown slate coping and color concrete decking compliment the house finishes while providing a warm contrast to the soft aqua water and bold multi-color green tile.
