Pool, Patio, and Pergola

Following Roger Krajnak Architects’ complete interior renovation of this home, the owner commissioned RKA to transform the rear yard into a serene setting for a pool, a patio, and a pergola that captured the spirit of this “sophisticated cottage”.  The raised travertine-clad water garden at the head of the swimming pool features water lilies and a blue tile wall that extends up from the pool.  Three water scuppers in this wall provide the soothing sound signature of splashing water.  Along the south side of the pool, the new pergola provides a place for relaxation in the shade which is provided by a canopy of aluminum pergola pipes.  As the pergola pipes heat up in the sun, the air rises, and a cooling breeze is drawn from across the pool into the sitting area of the pergola.

Transformation of Coastal Home in Maine

The owners of this home required more than just a refresh for the renovation of this home, which is located on the shoreline of Penobscot Bay, near Castine, Maine.  A new kitchen, expanded study, and renovated Master Suite were reconfigured as the dark knotty pine gave way to a brighter, more cheerful interior finishes.  A new stair with cable railings was created to access one of the two lofts, while new cable railings were installed around the outdoor deck to enhance the unobstructed views through the birch trees to the bay beyond.  The exterior boasts a bold new color scheme with its blue siding, white trim, and chartreuse doors.
