The design team wanted their creation to integrate with the home’s contemporary design, which features strong vertical and horizontal lines. They decided on a triangular theme, with a three-sided spa and modified triangular pool. The travertine deck offers a neutral canvas. Pieces of the stone were cut and used in place of waterline tile.

A roof-level waterfall adds a bold arc and big sound. In addition, it can be viewed from virtually every room in the U-shaped house. To complement the dominant fall, a low-lying perimeter overflow waterfeature in black sits tucked away in a nook. Seen directly across from the spa, the feature adds a touch of quiet, elegant contemplation. It spills over onto surrounding gravel, then trickles down into an underground holding tank.

Builders had to install the plumbing for the high waterfall before the home’s foundation was dug. A comparatively small sheet fall spills over from the spa to the pool. This offers a quieter alternative when the homeowners don’t want the sound level created by the larger fountain. This waterfall can be seen directly from the dining room.
