Located across from Bayou Robert in Alexandria, Louisiana. This project is known as the “wall garden”. The concept behind this project was to create an outdoor room and courtyard defined by a perimeter wall. Located in this room is a pool, spa, water feature and plantings. The client wanted to have a sense of enclosure, but did not want to block views of the surrounding gardens. The design solution was to define the pool space with a low travertine stone wall, set at seating height, leaving open views to the surrounding gardens . The wall is briefly perforated with paving that surrounds the pool. It then reemerges and extends into the pool at four separate points. These wall portions become a beautiful water feature for the pool.
The final project provided the owners with the sense of enclosure while maintaining open views to the surrounding landscape.
