5 Backyard Designs for the Pacific Northwest

Home is more than the roof and walls that offer shelter. It’s the unique way a kitchen reflects your personality, how the front door welcomes you in, and how your backyard design entices you to linger longer outside. Luxury home designs weave the best of architecture, interior design, and landscaping together into a single work of art, with every detail merging beauty with function.

We’ve gathered five backyard designs that make the most of outdoor spaces.

1 | Balcony

Woodinville architects design a master suite balcony

Storybook Cottage charms with every step. The balcony off the remodeled master bedroom offers an ideal perch to enjoy morning coffee and evening sunsets. When the homeowners throw open the corresponding Juliet balcony doors, an enchanting afternoon breeze wafts through the space.

2 | Yard

Meydenbauer Place brings luxury living to family life. At the request of the homeowners, we installed high-end artificial turf as part of the backyard design, creating an exquisite, low-maintenance, high-enjoyment space for the entire family. Stepping stones and hearty foliage frame the open lawn.

3 | Waterfront Dining

Woodinville architects craft an exquisite outdoor entertaining space

Yard, garden, patio, and water bring outdoor luxury to life at Lakefront Splendor. Ranking amoung our favorite Pacific Northwest designs, this backyard space builds community around the waterfront, table-top fire pit. Thriving plant-life adds natural vibrance to the property.

4 | Garden

Located downtown yet a world unto itself, Tuscan Transformation transports its occupants to a flourishing Italian garden. Blossoming flowers, verdant vegetation, and meticulous stonework encourage visitors to linger outside. Every landscaping choice perfectly complements the home’s architecture.

5 | Entrance

Luxury home design uses intentional home color for effect

Ratio House makes an entrance. Japan-inspired landscaping reflects the home’s Asian aesthetic. Stepping stones across a serene water-feature lead up to the custom designed front door. From stones to door to the entirety of the interior, golden rectangles unify the space and imbue artistry into the home.

Luxury home designs comprise more than interior bliss. They incorporate outdoor experiences into the home’s exterior plans. After all, great landscaping is never an afterthought. It’s part of the art of architecture.
