Alfresco is an Italian word meaning ‘in the cool air’. It refers to the practice in warmer climates of eating outside the house in a grassed area or under a purpose-built structure to protect from rain and sun. Alfrescos form a large part of the total concept design in an outdoor living space.
Alfresco areas provide the ability to live both inside and outside at the same time by having doors that open onto the outdoor area. Having an outdoor seating area will add useability to the pool area. Think about how you want to use this area and how many people you may need to accommodate for seating or other activities. The pool designer will see that it merges seamlessly with the design and construction of the pool and your home.
Steve is awesome, he really knows what you want. He has built three pools for me, I wouldn't have anyone else. His company is extremely professional and I highly recommend him.
