St. Charles Residence
About This Project
After purchasing their dream home in St. Charles, this client turned to us for a makeover of their outdoor living space. The topography of the site posed serious challenges as a deep ravine cut through the back yard in between the home and an existing swimming pool, requiring a bridge to cross over.
The current patio space was too small and in poor condition, and the client desired an outdoor kitchen and fire feature for entertaining. Additionally, the large space under the deck was virtually unusable.
The new patio was designed with creativity, function and flow in mind, bringing the pool, living, cooking and dining spaces all together seamlessly. Natural stone veneers were used throughout, keeping with the natural surroundings.
The bridge crossing the ravine was redesigned, and an alternate stone crossing was added. The space under the deck was transformed into a three season room with a veneered stone wall and screens, and an under deck ceiling system to carry rainwater away.
Low voltage LED lighting enhances the aesthetics and safety of the space, allowing the client to enjoy their new space day or night. The result is an incredible increase of beautiful, usable space. It is a perfect example of what we can create regardless of site conditions.
