Outdoor Lounge With Diagonal Wooden Beam Structure

The elevated, diagonal ridge beam that projects out on the leading edge of the wooden structure posed a challenge for the design team. Custom steel connections and careful planning made the outdoor layout successful in creating a cozy lounge for the homeowners and their guests to enjoy.

Covered Outdoor Lounge

The four posts and support beams are intentionally large and significant, which gives one the feeling of shelter and comfort.

Cozy, Covered Patio for Lounging and Dining

Part of the challenge in the design was creating a visually rich environment using a variety of raw materials such as concrete, wood, steel, and Dekton.

Rustic Contemporary Outdoor Lounge With Fireplace

Beautiful wooden beams provide cover for the outdoor lounge, which includes a custom dining table and a cushioned sitting area next to the fireplace.

Inviting Outdoor Lounge With Custom Fireplace

The open fireplace invites all to snuggle close on chilly evenings, while the oversized lounge seating entices family and friends to relax and put their feet up.

Cozy Outdoor Lounge Features Aura Fireplace

The use of concrete was essential for creating multi-purpose benches and retaining walls across the back and sides of the structure, which envelope the domineering Aura fireplace with a curved, centralized hearth.

Outdoor Lounge Blends Into Landscape

The goal of this design was to turn a previously unused portion of the homeowners' acreage into a retreat that would reflect who they are with the use of industrial and raw materials that reflect the natural landscape.
