Project Details

Project Location: Los Angeles
Contractor, Architect/designer, General/Concrete contractor: Scott Cohen, Green Scene Landscaping & Swimming Pools, Chatsworth, Calif. (Facebook)
Amount of polished concrete: 250 square feet of polished coping and counters, plus 1,500 square feet of polished concrete pavers
Size of building/project: 3,000 square feet backyard

Our design team was commissioned to design and build a family fun backyard within the requirements of the clients, Feng Shu Master. The Master required that water spill toward the home from a height of 3 feet above the house foundation, and that fire (cooking area) and water (pool/spa) not cross paths.

The innovative solution was to design and build a reverse infinity edge pool with a raised spa waterfall and offset swim up bar/kitchen.

The tri-level kitchen counters were cast in place of ivory-colored concrete that was hand-seeded with aggregates and Abalone sea shell. The pool and spa coping were cast and polished to match the counters.
