Surrounds Landscape Architecture & Construction


Surrounds Landscape Architecture & Construction
 What was your vision for this project?
This project features clean lines and an adherence to a simple color and materials palette. Accented by a sharp contrast of textures, from rough building stone to smooth travertine, a modern pool house with a soaring roof frames the pool area and a large outdoor kitchen is located nearby.

What challenges did you encounter?
The project’s tight timeline. We started design work in fall, the permitting process was completed over the winter and construction began in spring. We completed the job in nine months, including the coordination of the pool house and pool construction. We sourced beautiful plants and stone and refined every detail.

How does this project demonstrate your firm’s capabilities?
We conceptualized a project with several architectural elements, developed an integrated design for the pool house and landscape, then collaborated with KohlMark Group to detail the structure—all in a shorter period than would have seemed possible.
