Los Altos Hills Outdoor Rooms

How about gathering around the fire after a soak in the spa? What a great way to spend warm evenings. Aggregate concrete formed in curved panels serve as screens for the outdoor shower and double as water features. Porous pavers absorb rain and reclaim it in a grey water tank for watering the orchard. In the terraced yard you see sinuous concrete walls, finished to resemble COR-TEN steel.
