Two contrasting, yet correlative water features are the focal points of the entry way and a secluded outside patio in a contemporary home in Malibu, CA.
A Bernar Venet sculpture appears to levitate atop an infinity pool on the secluded patio outside the Malibu home. Standing in a courtyard surrounded by glass windows, the feature is the focal point of the outside patio, and can be seen from any point inside the house. Underwater lighting illuminates the sculpture, creating interesting reflections along the surface of the still pool as it seamlessly disappears along an infinity edge into a hidden pool below. The pool is level with the ground below, creating the visual effect of water extending infinitely or vanishing along the ground plane.
Three stainless steel sculptures stand at the entry way of the modern home. Strategically designed to mimic the curvature of the house, the sculptures compliment the surrounding architecture, yet add a unique, captivating element to the outside patio. Cascading water creates vibrant reflections off the stainless steel surfaces, reflecting the existing greenery surrounding the sculptures as well as the illuminated pond below.
