Marist College, a private school in Poughkeepsie, New York, established on 200 acres adjacent to the Hudson River, has been transformed by infrastructure and landscape upgrades in recent years to accommodate the college's expanding student population.

The Leading Edge

At this residence in Laguna Niguel, Calif., Urban Landscape reconstructed the existing pool as a four-sided negative edge pool by removing the wall faces of the old structure and raising them 18 inches. In order for the water to flow equally and properly, the levels had to be absolutely precise. Iridescent glass tile and fiber optic lights accentuate the pool. The project also included a backyard outdoor living space beneath a 600-square-foot structure that features heated cooking and dining areas.
