Glen Ellyn Residence II
About This Project
After a year in their new home, this client came to us searching for a solution to creating an outdoor living space and water feature in their challenging lot. Built into a hill, the back yard sloped toward the house, posing a number of challenges.
Our design took advantage of these difficulties by digging into the hill to create a large usable space. An outdoor kitchen and bar, fire pit and pondless waterfall with stream are all thoughtfully incorporated into the space.
The stream and fire pit come together in a meeting of fire and water. A sizeable open area was maintained outside of the patio so that their children have plenty of space to play.
