The scope of the project included a porch addition, pool and cabana structure, for an existing home located in Old Metairie, LA. The clients wanted to reform their backyard space into a secluded refuge, where their entire family could take advantage of a previously underutilized backyard.

The goal was for the porch to feel better connected to the yard thereby visually extending both areas. The porch was re-designed to be as open as possible and it incorporates many similar materials also incorporated throughout yard.

Stairs were redesigned to be much wider and lead directly to the backyard for a great sense of connection between the two. The cabana is clad in ipe with a cedar ceiling, concrete columns, and a metal standing seam roof. It includes a full kitchen, outdoor shower, bath and activity area.
