Bocce Venue

A Home for Entertaining Day or Night

Entertainment and fun were the focus for this rental venue’s backyard in the downtown area. It not only needed to be functional for small to medium groups, but beautiful as well. Overall, this venue’s landscape provides an intimate and inviting space to entertain, at any time.

Elevated Yet Inviting Play Areas

One of the first elements we designed was a bocce ball/washers area along one of the narrow sides of the house. This made use of an area that would likely only function as a passageway. 

We also designed the areas surrounding the pool, placing planting, stairways, paths and aesthetic elements, such as large urns, to help promote the overall image of the property.

Lighting for Nighttime Fun

Another goal of the project was to create a nighttime atmosphere through lighting that promoted a fun, eclectic yet high-end look. 

A mixture of line voltage and low voltage lighting, plus combining various techniques, created a playful yet stylish ambiance. Bistro lights were strung on cabling to provide ambient light as well as a bit of “Austin style” to the bocce ball area. 

For a main focal wall at the pool we used a mixture of wall grazing accent uplighting along the rear wall.
