Water Meets Sky
Scott Cohen says, “This award winning project in The Oaks of Calabasas involves all of the latest design trends in outdoor home improvements. Fire burn in a large glass basin and reflects over the all-tile pool and spa. The slightly raised perimeter overflow spa creates an outdoor room with built-in seating and backrest adjacent to the pass-through fireplace. I selected a pass-through fireplace to keep our views of the canyons as unobstructed as possible. The outdoor kitchen counter is cast-in-place concrete and recycled glass set at three different levels to serve all entertaining needs: a serve bar at 44”, a prep counter at 36” and table seating at 30”.
The fire feature sports an 8’ wide cascading waterfall over stacked stone, and an 8’ wide fire trough. The water feature fills the upper basin and then spills gently over crushed glass. The cinderblock and concrete walls were waterproofed before stacking the stone back at a slight angle.
