Cool Contemporary

Located in Fishers, Indiana, this project turned an ordinary backyard into an extraordinary living space with a paver patio, gas fire pit, stunning plantings, hot tub, and a tile deck featuring an outdoor kitchen.

Before and After

From before to after, this yard was transformed from boring to a modern, luxurious spot to relax.

The Challenges

Challenges for this project included a shallow backyard and the need to preserve limited golf course views, an aged existing deck which needed to be replaced with a material which didn’t look like a deck, and the need for shade but without limiting sunlight shining into the breakfast nook.  The client likes entertaining but also relaxing after a long day at work so amenities on the deck needed to include an outdoor kitchen, area for a television, and a hot tub.

The Solution

Aspen’s team of talented designers created a custom living space which fits the needs of the clients and the space perfectly.  The existing wood deck was replaced with a new deck covered in porcelain tile and cable railing.  An outdoor kitchen was built up through the deck with a louvered pergola overhead to create shade when needed but also allow for sunlight to shine inside the house when the louvers are left open.  A hot tub was designed to sit at a lower height for easy entry and exit from the main deck. It was also situated so users could relax and watch a game on the outdoor tv.  Lastly, for family nights, a lower paver patio was designed with a firepit and seat wall for enjoying a warm fire and views down the fairway!
