Project Highlight: Santa Barbara Modern

We’re excited to debut this newly completed Frisco project located in the exclusive Newman Village community! Our vision was to create a unique, understated space to accent the modern feel of this Santa Barbara/Mediterranean-style home. Our clients love to entertain, and we worked to create a dynamic, experiential environment offering multiple areas and experiences to engage with.


As you walk up, an intimate front courtyard greets guests and invites you to sit and enjoy the morning sun. The courtyard’s interesting angles added structural depth to the front entrance of the home. The backyard’s destination firepit, offset and tucked away from the main entertaining spaces, offers seclusion and intimacy with a view of the pool area and home.  The home’s large covered back patio blurs the boundaries from inside and out, highlighting the pool as the focal point of the home. The pool area shines with an infinity edge spa, raised water feature with large custom stainless steel scupper, ledge stone veneer, mitered limestone accents, acid-washed concrete, and custom pottery.


It’s no secret we’re a passionate bunch, especially when it comes to maintaining the spaces we design and build. We’re looking forward to caring for this beautiful environment as it grows and continuing the wonderful relationship we’ve built with our Santa Barbara Modern clients!
