This was the first substantial project that  Steve Yett completed on his own. “The client originally hired me to design a  deck on the other side of the property.  Then  one day they told me that they had two  separate designs for pools approved, but  they didn’t particularly like either one of  them.  And they asked if I could come up a  third design, of course maintaining all of the  agency approvals that were already in place  for the other two designs....  And of course  those approvals were going to expire in two  weeks!” 
“Talking to the client, it didn’t seem like the pool was going to be used on a daily basis.  I decided that the  pool needed to also serve as a sculptural element - more  than most.”
