Backyard Goals: An Urban Oasis in Cow Hollow Is the Perfect Spot for a Slice and a Dip


What started off as a blank slate of a backyard with nary an amenity or even a blade of grass has been transformed into a backyard oasis.

Jeff King & Company worked with architect David Kotzebue to section the 1,000-square-foot yard in San Francisco's Cow Hollow into functional, amenity-filled zones that now include an outdoor kitchen, a dining platform, a fire pit and a hot tub.

The ipe wood deck that supports the kitchen zone was completely reconfigured and extended to accommodate dining furniture (which usually sits in place of the Adirondack chair and table in the foreground). Bluestone pavers were laid to connect the main deck with the sitting area and the spa tub. Along the full length of the deck are stadium-style steps that double as extra seating.
