"Living Waters" at Glendale Adventist Medical Center
We recently designed, fabricated, and installed a 20 ft. tall, illuminated water feature for Glendale Adventist Medical Center in Glendale, CA. The water feature consists of a 20 ft. tall curved Water Veil framed in brushed stainelss steel. Color changing LED lights were utilized to slowly change the color of water from inside the curved structure. A polished stainless steel reflecting pool surrounds the curved Water Veil and gently overflows to create a complimentary water effect.

Architecturally integrated copper water wall
A recessed copper water wall, approximately 14 ft. wide and 11 ft. tall, was recently installed at a contemporary home in Laguna Beach, California. The textured copper water wall and stepped catch basin were inset into an existing plaster wall and concrete steps. A remote pump system with programmable flow control valves was utilized to enhance the cascading water effects.

Veterans Memorial Fountain at San Dimas, CA
Water Studio worked with EM3 Group to design and build the memorial fountain at the new Veterans Memorial in San Dimas, California. This copper and bronze fountain is in a form of a five pointed star representing the five branches of the military service. The five triangular sections of the star (in varying heights) contain reflecting pools that overflow to the pentagon-shaped pool with a frothy fountain nozzle in the center. Underwater lights illuminate the water effects and bronze surfaces at night.

Glass mosaic water wall at Rosa Mexicano, San Francisco
Water Studio recently worked with CalAsia Construction to build the new mosaic-tiled water wall at the Rosa Mexicano restaurant in San Francisco. The multi-colored water wall is over 30 ft. wide and is the main focal point of the newly-opened restaurant. Cascading water runs down the iridescent glass tiles and behind 119 diver figures that are positioned in a diving motion.

Our latest design/build project at Amada in Brea, California
Two large water features were recently designed and built at the new Amada America's manufacturing center in Brea, California. Each water feature is approximately 33 ft. long and 12 ft. wide and are positioned perpendicular to each other on each side of the main entry. From the top of each reflecting pool, water falls down textured basalt and falls into an overflowing granite pool that rises 1 ft. above the dry river rock bed. A large concrete reservoir tank was used along with equipment in a concrete vault to clean and circulate the water.

Exterior Water Features at Mercy Hospital in Wisconsin
The exterior water features at Mercy Walworth Hospital in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin are the focal point of the new entry courtyard . Locally sourced boulders and cobble stones within the water feature create a natural aesthetic which blends with the curved ledgestone water wall and immense precast concrete bowl. The contemporary elements; wall and bowl, serve as starting points from which water begins its path through each stream. Remotely located pumps and filtration equipment are inaudible while re-circulating and cleaning the water; only the sounds of flowing water accompany the striking visual display.

Exterior Water Feature at Tribeca West
Water Studio designed, fabricated, and installed an eleven ft. tall exterior glass and stone water feature at Tribeca West in West Los Angeles, California. This free-standing water feature consists of four, six ft. wide glass panels that overlap to create an eighteen ft. wide water wall that becomes the focal point of the newly remodeled office complex.
The innovative structural design allows the frameless glass panels to be suspended with minimal structural frame. Extensive engineering and testing were conducted to build a structurally sound water feature that can withstand the strong wind loads and also meets local building codes. In front of the water wall (facing the lounge area) a low-height textured stone water feature continually overflows to create a reflecting pool with the soft sound of falling water.
