The lattice gazebo is attached to the house

Resembling a garden gazebo, this lattice patio enclosure provides a shady place to dine or just relax. Hugged by the house on two sides, the "gazebo' is part of George and Annette Hall's campaign to personalize their Corona del Mar tract house.

First in Hall's design came installation of custom-cast spiral stairs. Working with Karl Bentz, he replaced open wood decking with a double layer of 5/8-inch plywood. The surface was hot-mopped with asphalt, then carpeted.

Three 4-by-4 corner posts on the patio support framed lattice panels built from 1-by-2s, cut to length; seven 3 1/2-foot-high 4-by-4s support panels around the deck above. Bentz cut the archway curves from 5/8-inch exterior plywood and faced the undersides of the arches with benderboard. He finished the outside of each corner post with two 1-by-6s and painted the entire structure white.

Hall also designed a tile-topped serving-and-storage cabinet under the kitchen window pass-through. Lattice facings give the cabinet a visual tie to the gazebo and to two hinge-lidded benches by the pool.
