Seattle Cozy Patio
In Seattle's Fremont neighborhood SCJ Studio designed a new landscape to surround and set off a contemporary home by Coates Design Architects. The narrow spaces around the tall home needed structure and organization, and a thoughtful approach to layout and space programming. A concrete patio was installed with a Paloform Bento gas fire feature surrounded by lush, northwest planting. A horizontal board cedar fence provides privacy from the street and creates the cozy feeling of an outdoor room among the trees. LED low-voltage lighting by Kichler Lighting adds night-time warmth .

What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Streamlined horizontal boardsEvenly spaced horizontal wood slats have become an increasingly popular fence design, but they still make a design statement. In this yard, a cedar fence encircles a front yard seating area, providing privacy but also glimpses of the garden.This style works well with most contemporary buildings and with traditional homes that have horizontal siding, such as shiplap or tongue and groove.
