The excavated material has been used to shape the property's exterior features.

A level, trellised garapa-wood deck connects the main structure to the pool house. “The arbors near the pool knit everything together,” says Mikiten. “The deck is constructed over a drainage pit so the wood surface can be completely flush with the interior floor and the surrounding yard, which is critical for a fluid experience by someone using a wheelchair.”
The deck commands panoramic views of the city and the ocean in the distance. The lounge chairs are from IKEA.

Cassidy used the pool as an anchor for an overarching backyard master plan that pulled the parts together.
Before the addition of the approximately 750-square-foot pool (and its 65-square-foot hot tub), the lot was a scramble of structures: the house in one corner and the guesthouse and the office each occupying another.
The deck off of the house acts like a dock sticking into a lake. Cassidy opted for a midnight-black earthquake-friendly epoxy lining. "It adds that little extra heat and emphasizes the lagoon feeling," he says.
The decking on the rooftop is Burmese teak and the colorful Picot pouffes are by Paola Lenti.
