On this hilltop property in Danville, California a family returning from four years overseas was ready for an overhaul of their tired landscape to maximize possibilities for outdoor living. An existing pool and surrounding yard were extensively remodeled. New features include a spa, a modern pool pavilion with bathroom and outdoor kitchen, a walk-across water feature that spills into the main pool, and a gas fire pit. Patios of concrete and bluestone are softened by plantings of grasses and perennials. The pavilion was envisioned as a simple composition of a column, plane and post. The massive column doubles as a sky-lit bathroom with the wrapping roof plane supported on the other end by a single off-center post.
