Modern Carlsbad Pool & Spa

Victor & Marie wanted a minimalist contemporary design that would complement their home’s architecture and would include a backyard retreat complete with a swimming pool and all of the amenities and have it screen the power lines and deflect the traffic and noise of the busy street below them. A welcoming mahogany horizontal hardwood gate invites guests into the backyard side entrance. The area opens into a modern design of large gray and tan porcelain pavers in an offset pattern with black beach rocks.  A custom aluminum patio-covered structure practically covers the power lines and aesthetically provides a sleek modern structure to house a full outdoor kitchen complete with stainless steel barbecue and side burner, refrigerator, storage drawers, and long countertops on either side of the barbecue, perfect for serving and preparation. The stainless steel chord railings provide an elegant contemporary backdrop to the living room area and the unusual poured black cement circular firepit added to the contemporary style of this backyard. The pool, with its unique geometrical lines, creatively hangs over the existing bank giving the pool a “floating” feeling. A sauna sits in front of an existing oak tree and is highlighted by LED lighting making for a gorgeous backdrop to the evening sunset.
