Swimming Pool Includes Spa, Fountain

Thanks to its sleek, streamlined design, this private pool blends seamlessly with the horizon. In turn, the owners can see for miles as they swim a few laps, soak in the spa or lounge while the sun sets in the distance.

Backyard Overlooks San Francisco Bay, Silicon Valley

Set on a hillside overlooking the San Francisco Bay and Silicon Valley, this once mundane site was full of potential when the Kikuchi + Kankel Design Group arrived. After remodeling the pool area and adding rows of flowers, the homeowner and landscape architects then completed the space with an ultra-chic sculpture.

Sitting Area, Fire Pit Surrounded By Native Plants

With boulders, native plants and trees all around, this patio feels truly secluded from the rest of the house. By keeping the stone wall and fire pit within a neutral palette, though, the landscape architects were able to establish visual connections between the two spaces.

Patio Becomes Perfect Spot to Stargaze

Who could resist a backdrop as beautiful as this? While the fire pit offers some warmth as the sun goes down, two metal chairs give the owners room to watch the city lights fade and admire the stars.

Outdoor Space Receives Luxe Upgrades

To take their clients' pool to the next level, the Kikuchi + Kankel Design Group outfitted the feature with all new equipment, including a waterfall, spa, new stone surround and black pebble sheen bottom. The result? A luxe outdoor space that takes all your troubles away.

Contemporary Home in the Evening

A full moon casts a soft glow on the backyard at night, making the space somehow seem even more enchanting. Meanwhile, stone steps lead from the upper deck to the swimming pool and sculpture ahead.
