Water from the spa gently cascades over the travertine spillway into the pool mimicking the water that rolls over the huge waterfall at the back of the pool.
Welcome to the Stemple Project
This outdoor living space in Gilbert offers features and fun that will rival any amusement park or luxury resort in the valley. With over an acre of land to work with, the homeowners wanted to create a dream backyard and they knew the Chris Griffin was the designer who could deliver on their entire wish list. This project includes a custom Ramada complete with fireplace and ceiling fan, a small casita with a bathroom, a curved spa with therapy jets located on an island within the pool which can also be accessed by a 12-foot custom made iron and composite bridge, an outdoor kitchen and BBQ as well as an 800 square foot rock waterfall. But the crown jewel of this outdoor living space is the 120 foot lazy river that was designed, engineered and built by Chris Griffin and his team. And for just an added splash, there are a series of deck jets and water features which spray into the lazy river to cool off anyone passing by on a raft.
At night the pool becomes the center piece of the yard as its glow lights up the entire property.
The view from atop the massive rock waterfall shows just how large the island really is as well as showcasing the deck jets.
The deck jets around the lazy river add just another UNIQUE source of fun and playfulness to the project.
The custom bridge made of iron and composite decking provide access to the island and the spa for those who don’t want to swim across the pool.
A variety of lush greenery is used to soften the transition from the pool to the adjacent hardscape features and to complete the tropical feel of this outdoor living space.
The Ramada with the additional rounded turret like roof line adds an architectural feature with height and curves to tie in the curves of the pool to the geometric form of the house.
