Before & After: An Organic Modern Tranquil Backyard Oasis

Organic meets modern and Tulum meets Santorini in this resort-inspired design. We love taking inspiration from our client's favorite travel destinations and recreating features from their favorite resorts to make their own backyard getaway.

We took a dirt lot and turned it into the most tranquil backyard oasis imaginable and created a space that truly transports you every time you step outside. Our client’s home is in San Juan Capistrano, CA and they wanted a luxury backyard inspired by their favorite places to travel—which include Santorini and Tulum. Keep scrolling for a look at the entire process—from inspiration, to design, and a walkthrough of the finished space once construction was complete.  



Our client love to travel, so a lot of the inspiration they shared with us for their backyard included travel photos and images from 5-star resorts in Tulum and Santorini. They are drawn to organic shapes and natural materials, which we incorporated into the final designs. 



Organic modern style blends modern, minimal elements with organic shapes and natural materials for an exterior that is endlessly tranquil. For this exterior, we took cues from resorts in Tulum and Santorini and brought these styles home for our client with rustic textures coupled with creamy stucco and a minimal aesthetic. It’s the perfect place to get away and relax. 



While we did not construct this outdoor space ourselves, we were onsite throughout the process and kept tabs on the build. The lot was completely transformed from open space and lots of dirt to a private resort worthy of 5-stars.



This might be our most relaxing design yet. The dreamy neutral colors, soft textures, and lounge areas all make this space a true oasis and a vacation every time you step outside. There are floating steps, a hidden spa behind an incredible statement wall full of candles, massive daybeds, and so much more.
