Pasadena Showcase House of Design 2013

Pacific Outdoor Living is proud to be a featured designer in this year’s Pasadena Showcase House of Design. This is the 14th year in a row that we have been featured!

The Pasadena Showcase House of design is one of the oldest and most prestigious home and garden tours in the country. It is a yearly event put on by the Pasadena Showcase House of the Arts, in which Southern California’s most talented landscapers and interior designers join forces to completely renovate an estate. Each designer adds to the home’s significant architecture with modern design concepts. The proceeds from the event go towards funding music programs, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Walt Disney Concert Hall and educational programs for students.

This year, Pacific Outdoor Living has been asked to completely renovate the front driveway and garden, making our design the first thing you see!

We will be replacing the current cement driveway with one made of beautiful antique cobble paving stones.

The setting will feature works by Cha-Rie Tang, a renowned architect and ceramic artist. She will be designing one of a kind glass sculptures to place around the property.

There will be an 80 foot stream running along the Eastern perimeter, complete with beautiful plant life. This is going to be a very unique landscape, which immediately transports you back to nature and leaves you with a feeling of utmost tranquility, all before you even make it inside the house.

To cross over the stream, we’ve designed a spectacular grass bridge. It will be similar to the one built on the Augusta Golf Course, one of the most famous courses in the world and home to the Masters Tournament.

We are all very excited about this project and the Pasadena Showcase, which begins on April 21st. Stay tuned for more updates on the Showcase, as well as progress pictures of the renovation.
