Contemporary Shores

One intimate enclave nestled on Florida’s Tampa Bay overflows with ample elements for luxurious outdoor living crafted within an economy of space. The slender, yet stunning, 3,000-square-foot exterior of Contemporary Shores brims with energy and elegance — courtesy of expert planning and custom craftsmanship by the award-winning artisans of Ryan Hughes Design.

Contemporary Shores encompasses the rear exterior of a modern Tampa Bay-side residence. The outdoor space was crafted to hold numerous custom elements mirroring the home’s visual aesthetic, while the unexpected was also sprinkled throughout. Contributing to the modern vibe is an abundance of tile and turf-defined spaces that provide luxury outdoor living experiences full of water, fire, illumination and landscaping.

In this waterfront backyard, an all-glass tile vanishing edge pool sits at the center of a dramatic rain wall, enclosed sunken kitchen and fire lounging deck with custom banquette. Atop the sunken outdoor kitchen, an all-weather pergola provides a unique crowning experience that delivers soothing sights and sounds of gently falling waters. This engineered wall of rain descends from the structure and drops directly into the pool without obstructing views from the fully-equipped sunken outdoor kitchen.

Positioned at the opposite end of the pool, the cozy fire lounge offers a perfect perspective for taking in the scope of activities and experiences within the outdoor living space. From curated covered lounging and dining to a petite putting green along the private dock, areas for entertainment are expertly designed throughout. Professional illumination accents architectural and landscape elements including the vanishing edge spa, stairways and lounging sun shelf — allowing for enjoyment to flow from day into night.

Contemporary Shores overflows with custom elements for outdoor living; though limited in dimensions, this bespoke retreat embraces every inch with true luxury.
