Lake Okanagan

The multiple Georgie-award winning Woodland Hills project is home to the Okanagan's most desirable addresses. Situated in the Mission area of Kelowna the ridge boasts 360 degree views of the valley and Okanagan Lake below. The french doors from the kitchen open to an upper patio which leads both to a covered fireplace and sitting area or to the BBQ and sun deck below. At the fireplace, a source pond in the rocks trickles down to a stream which meanders between the floating lily-pad walkway and into the pool below. The pool waters caress a submersed sun deck, perfect for sun-tanning and cooling off, before flowing over the infinity-edge to the canyon below. At the lower end, water flows through architectural weirs and into the natural rock pond, the waters of which lap at the lower sun deck and BBQ seating area. Given the glorious location, a "zero"-scaping approach was taken, where an elegant mix of faux rock and real rock define space in the yard and indigenous plants take us out to the rugged surroundings. This backyard is a stunning example of how the flexibility of good faux rock can be maximized and paired with both real rock and architectural elements to create something greater than the whole.
