Outdoor Living at its Finest:

  • Pool deck includes covered areas under upper house deck with multiple sleek heating units to add warmth on cooler evenings.
  • Glass guard rails shield cool breezes, but allow view to trees and vistas.
  • Multiple seating areas offer options for seating.
  • Pool and entertaining deck access were vastly improved by adding direct stairways linking the upper (living) floor of the house. New folding door system opens lower floor to the pool deck, allowing greater indoor/outdoor flow.
  • Complementary combination of materials with varying and contrasting textures: coloured concrete, pre-cast concrete, flamed basalt, ledge stone.
  • In-deck fountain jets along sides of pool.
  • Built-in outdoor kitchen with bar fridge allows complete outdoor living.
  • Hot tub positioned for view.
  • Outdoor sound system.
  • Pool deck, kitchen, bar and plantings help to screen views to neighbouring properties.

Project Scope:
Our client’s steeply sloping yard was virtually unusable. They contacted several construction firms to create a multi-level outdoor living space and they were told time after time that the project just couldn’t be done. This outdoor space was one of the most challenging landscapes we’ve ever had to work with but Flintstones delivered. They wanted an outdoor living space and pool area where they could enjoy time with their family — and we gave them that and so much more.

Before

Tackling this steep sloping lot was no easy feat but Flintstones was up for the challenge. To say it was unusable before would be an understatement. A visionary design was necessary to not only create an amazing outdoor space but to completely transform this property.

 

Design

After extensive consultation with the homeowners, Flintstones went to work to create a design that would exceed the owners vision for outdoor living and entertaining. The design included a vision to both improve and create the connection of both the upper and lower house levels to the pool deck. Entertaining space and flow was paramount with long, shallow stairs that doubled as seating for larger groups of people while the pool deck itself included a kitchen, bar, hot tub and privacy plantings to screen from neighbours.

 

After

This unique outdoor living space now offers the homeowners with the ability to entertain family and friends with ease in a space that is truly unique and stunningly beautiful. It includes multiple seating areas with consideration for time of day and weather conditions and complete privacy from neighbours while taking advantage of stunning city viewscapes.
