Simple and Elegant

The Brief

This elegant garden courtyard design is located at the rear of a three-story terraced house.

The owners wanted to create a luxurious and stylish design featuring a secluded seating area and a pool with running water.

They also wanted to extend their first-floor balcony adding a spiral staircase leading into the garden.

Additionally, they wanted to obscure views of a nearby rugby stadium.

The Design

An L-shaped pool was built, fed by a water wall. 

The main part of the garden courtyard design consists of two patios connected by stepping stones across the pool.
