139 Outdoor Metal Fences, Walls Design Photos And Ideas

"The design separates public and private space by a covered, but external walkway," said the architects. "By juxtaposing these positions, the house acts like a camp – retreating to the tent to sleep and living under the tree canopy outside – a universal gathering space connected by landscape rather than built form."
The garden pavilion sits adjacent to the original house and overlooks the reworked garden and new pool. The pool is surrounded by a metal screen element that's also repeated elsewhere in the project.

Strategically placed windows throughout highlight site-specific views and punctuate the structure with this distinctly function driven form.
Outdoor spaces are incorporated into every level of the house.
To keep the original street-level exterior view, the second-floor addition was set back from the building’s existing façade.
Outdoor Deck at Living & Dining Rooms
Built with thick stone walls that create two horizontal planes in between the forest, the house has a roof made of glass and steel.
On the lower level is a fully-glazed living and dining space that leads to an outdoor pool and terrace area.
"Through its translucency, the curtain offers a counterpoint of exposure or enclosure depending on how light falls on it, enabling alternate diurnal qualities," says Gibson.
They wanted their new home to better connect with the surrounding garden site, and include a sheltered outdoor space that would allow them to dine comfortably outdoors even in the hot summer months.
Gibson opened up the interiors to create an "engawa," an edging strip of non-tatami matted flooring in Japanese architecture, that he then enclosed in a steel mesh curtain.

Damon  Fuhrer Landscapes created a Japanese-inspired garden that incorporated bamboo, moss-covered boulders, and a water feature.
Makai’s structural steel components were designed by Mark Donofrio and affixed to the lava at four points. The kitchen contains a Kohler sink and pot racks from IKEA. "Because of the angle of the lava, it’s asymmetrical," says architect Erin Moore.
Operable timber shutters and screens offer protection from extreme weather. Zoning the house into three distinct masses creates a partly sheltered courtyard to make this year-round blending of the indoors and outdoors possible.
“I made a very conscious decision, when I realized that the house with nothing in it was such a fantastic work of art,” says Greg Wooten, “to go out of my way to pull back and only select pieces that complemented the architecture and would allow both the house and the furniture to breathe.” The place is furnished minimally with vintage finds he chose for the rooms over time.

The construction was done to make sure that the four areas of the roof — the sundeck, grass hill, play space, and outdoor terrace — all felt like distinct but united areas.
