FEATURED PROJECT: NALI Typology: Outdoor Entertainment Deck Location: Corona, CA Client: The Mistry Family Year Built: Completed August 2011 NALI is a simple idea; elements of hardscape, softscape, natural light, natural sound and a water feature come together to inform a design that is both aesthetically modern and appropriate within its environmental dynamic. Beautiful views over Sierra del Oro from 180 degrees of the platform, with space for hosting parties with its barbeque stand, bartop and sink. The opposite edge is a square shelving system for holding decorative articles and to hide the source of the sound of running water. The perimeter of the deck features an assortment of small landscaped elements, a rockery, vines and the water fountain.
