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 chairs and cushions around the fire pit were custom-made by Dehn Bloom Design to fit perfectly within the dimensions of the bluestone patio, keeping the space comfortable but uncluttered. The scope of work extended beyond the yard to the balconies that overlook it. Shown here is the family room balcony with its new glass railing. Before, it was a typical all-metal balcony, similar to a fire escape.
