An intimate gathering spot on the middle terrace has a built-in fireplace edged with a low seat wall; square cutouts in the wall frame views of the desert.

The lowest and most intimate terrace ― screened by an existing California pepper tree ― is reserved for a spa. "It's a wonderful series of spaces for outdoor living," noted a juror. "The subdued colors and gentle transitions to the desert make the garden very unobtrusive."
