When the owner of a hilltop home in Eugene needed to rebuild a cracked swimming pool, we were asked to re-imagine the entire yard. As we studied the site’s contours and views, we spotted an opportunity — and realized the old pool, while conventionally positioned, was in the wrong spot. We rotated it to achieve a striking “big-sky” vista in which the edge of the swimming pool appears to vanish into the air as you look out to the valley. The pool then became the centerpiece in a series of connected outdoor spaces, including a new sitting area and a fire pit.
