Those who lounge on the patio are quite literally surrounded by water — below, above and in the distance. It’s the perfect environment for water lovers as the relaxing vibe permeates the entire outdoor space. The modern design is definitely softened by the inclusion of the water in the novel pool design.
Modern architecture boasts the actual structure and materials used in the building vs. covering them up with ornate designs. That is why most modern designs feature elements of wood, steel and glass, in order to show-off these industrial structural materials.
Just as the pools run perpendicular to one another at the back of the house, the crisscrossing elements of the walkway and concrete support structures have a similar geometry. The hillside yard features small paving stones that provide a design element as well as a structure that controls rainwater flow and erosion.
The fundamentals of modern architecture are clean and simple. Its ever-present philosophy abides to the ideal that form follows function. Therefore, modern architects express themselves through simplicity, clear views of structural elements and by eschewing unnecessary design details.
