Olive Grove Retreat

A sunken oval sitting area nestled amongst a grove of ancient olive trees provides respite and retreat from the cares of the modern world. With a scale ideally suited for relaxed and intimate conversations, this modern design was envisioned as the perfect picnic spot for a romantic couple or a small group of friends. A steel water runnel originating from a small spring cuts through the bench top and drops into the sunken gravel center, releasing gentle notes which mix with the sound of the wind-rustled olive branches above.
