Bay Colony Residence- Renovation Complete

Redesigned by Outside Productions starting in 2012, Andrea Douglas-Cook oversaw the completion of this renovation in Vizcaya in Bay Colony.  During a recent visit, Andrea was able to take some photos of the final design and catch up with the owner about his favorite aspects of the design. 

With mangroves and a lagoon beyond, the owner wanted a luxurious, spa-like, and tranquil space.  New materials and finishes were selected and the existing pool was renovated to incorporate an infinity edge.  The infinity edge terminates into two pedestals with planter bowls.  The spa was also renovated to incorporate a spillover and refinished with reflective, light blue, glass tile  

A trellis was added on the side of the home and extends to the rear where an outdoor dining room overlooks the pool.  A unique mix of wood and concrete columns, the trellis provides both shade and privacy for those using the outdoor kitchen.  Bamboo and Philodendron beautifull screen the neighbor's home while providing additional privacy.  A walkway of stepping stones and white mexican beach pebble perfectly contrasts the lush, tropical landscape and modernize the landscape. 

Seen from an upstairs balcony, the fire pit is another focal point in this design. The stepping stone and faux turf deck is a beautiful, low-maintenance option for the space that will be used year-round.  Overall the transitional design perfectly compliments the natural backdrop and will be the perfect gathering space for the homeowner no matter the season.
