The Aspen design team created a simple, open floor plan using modern materials like 2-foot-by-3-foot slab pavers (Unilock Beacon Hill Smooth XL), dark suede-finished granite countertops, Unilock UCara for the outdoor kitchen, and Unilock Lineo Dimensional for the gas firepit.
The design solution was for a multi-level space so the countertop could be at the same level over the entire kitchen. Multi-levels also aided in the management of water and how it drained from the space. Fitting the space better than another roof structure, a LouveRoof pergola was installed to offer the family shade while sitting outside, as well as protection from rain. Electric heaters extend the outdoor living space’s useful season well into the late fall or early winter.
Whereas the original patio was small and didn’t drain well, the new space is a true extension of the home’s living space in both form and function. Opening the sliding glass doors allows the homeowners and their guests to flow freely between the indoors and their new outdoor living space.
