A Surfer's Small Modern Backyard
By Aaron Britt / Published by Dwell

The fire pit, concrete pavers, and the ipe bench are custom designs. The planter isa 1970s design by La Gardo Tackett from Architectural Pottery, and hidden in the bamboo is a shower from Calazzo.

Jacobson and Lee designed the long steel-and-ipe bench, which suspends from the low concrete wall. Dukes relaxes on a Willy Guhl Loop chair with her German Shepherd, Major.
