This expansion of the interior can be reached quickly and easily through the large glass doors, which can be opened 3.60 meters wide. The floor consists of Del Rio pebbles, the olive tree and the lavender that surrounds the seating area provide more nature.

Cliff and Marcie Goldstein wanted an outdoor area that exuded the atmosphere of a holiday resort and where they could have fun with their friends. Since the nights in Santa Monica are rather quiet, this fireplace became the focus of this small seating area, which is located between the garage and kitchen. It is a design by landscape architect Mark Beall. In order to stay true to the style of the interior design, he chose beams as the ceiling and built in French doors to facilitate access to the exterior from the interior. The plaster and the colors are also adapted to those of the interior design. The tiles that adorn the fireplace as well as the furniture are the choice of interior designer Kristin Pon and should reflect the earth tones of the kitchen.
