20 Outdoor Walkways Vertical Fences, Walls Design Photos And Ideas

Outdoor area/balcony
Front of the house.
A courtyard in the mid-section of the house draws plenty of light to its center.
"The design separates public and private space by a covered, but external walkway," note the team. "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 architects preserved the front of the house, but incorporated three bedrooms, a dining room, and lounge area into the new floor plan. They renovated the bathroom and laundry room and built a new powder room.
The rear elevation of the home faces North, taking advantage of natural light via extensive doors and clerestory windows tucked under the eaves.
Designed by Los Angeles-based creative agency Folklor in partnership with SKG Investments, Native retains the previous motel’s charm with original features like the stone fireplace and concrete aggregate floors.
The structure is built entirely of reinforced, poured in-situ concrete, except for the metallic pillars on opposite ends of the home.

The ADU shares the backyard of the main home, but gabion retaining walls (rocks in wire cages) and an elevated terrace gives it an intimate space of its own.
“I love the look of mass plantings,” notes Neely, near Mexican feather grasses--which thrive on the sunny lot.
