This Shell Beach home was remodeled with an emphasis on improving indoor/outdoor connections and accentuating ocean views. Comprised of 3 fire pits, a spa, multiple balconies and patios, this project provided numerous outdoor entertaining spaces. New hardscape and planting palettes revived the space to a warmer, fresher, and more expansive feel.
We used 45 degree angles on the ground plane to create more dynamic interest in the otherwise square lot while also creating the illusion of larger spaces. A cool colored planting palette complemented the warmer stone elements throughout the project embodying a Mediterranean atmosphere. While most of the project provides relaxing lounge spaces, a play climbing feature was installed into the cypress trees for the clients’ children.
The final product accentuated JGS’s ability to uncover the hidden potential behind many tired homes and provide them with new enjoyable outdoor spaces.
