Patio Perfection

What’s state of the art in outdoor rooms?

Consider Rios Clementi Hale Studios’ recently completed project in Bel Air. RCHS installed a steel-boned pavilion with retractable glass walls and a turf-topped viewing deck. Glossed automotive paint lacquers the high-concept decor of the cantilevered, slightly asymmetrical space, while motorized doors, Aero floor-to-ceiling sunshades, infrared heaters and touch screens round out the details. The firm joined with Ferrari Forge to create furnishings like a fire table and console. Even so, the Air Frame Pavilion doesn’t detract from the wide L.A. vistas.
