A relaxing backyard that offers a tranquil refuge amidst the urban rush that surrounds us is a refuge that we all seek. But few among us actually have the privilege of enjoying such a serene escape. Transforming an unruly and wild backyard into a sensational and polished hangout that also comes with a spacious deck, firepit and sauna, Board & Vellum Architecture and Design altered this modern Seattle home dramatically. The homeowners wanted to turn their backyard covered with vegetation into a reading retreat that could also host friends and family when needed.
Relaxing backyard oasis with hot tub, firepit and a shower area
The backyard reading retreat is a deceivingly simple name for this shed-styled backyard addition that has it all! Homeowners can enjoy a fun and rejuvenating evening here, get away from the mundane and also turn the space into a party zone when needed. A series of smart bookshelves line the walls of the interior as large glass windows connecting it visually with the wooden deck outside. A loft bedroom and a tufted bay window seat with storage provide additional options which allow the retreat to multitask with ease.
