Located on The Strand at Hermosa Beach, CA, a low-height water wall with integrated fire pit is the main feature of a modern beachfront home. Water flows down both sides of a 17 ft. long low-height water wall with a 8 ft. long linear fire feature, facing the main indoor/outdoor living space, and rising from a dark reflecting pool. The water wall acts to protect the fire from the ocean breeze, yet provides an unrestricted view of the ocean from the home.
Two textured basalt water walls, one tall & one short, are interconnected through a pond at the entryway of the contemporary home. Cascading water falls from both features into a pool of water wrapping around the entry court beneath a floating step to the entrance, while an upper pool is level with the front door.
