When you join two creative forces—Eva Knoppel, founder of Garden of Eva Landscape Design Group Inc., with the renowned international film producer, Deepak Nayar—the results are nothing short of magical.

Nayar and his wife Mary wanted an indoor-outdoor expansion of their Sunset Plaza home in the Hollywood Hills that would be conducive to their family (including their two children and pets), and a comfortable environment for entertaining frequent guests.

Think of the house as a movie set, Deepak suggested, with focal points when people first walk in. Eva recommended building an outdoor living area with a fireplace as the main focal point as well as a dining area and kitchen, all surrounded by craned in, full grown olive trees—all ideas that perfectly matched Nayar's vision.

Defined by a series of descending terraces, the Nayar's stunning new backyard (photographed by Luke Gibson) not only includes the large living, dining and kitchen area with an adjacent play area that provides a basketball hoop and table tennis, but an imaginative cascading water feature, a newly redone pool and spa, plus a delightful, redesigned pool house that doubles as a night-time screening room. A terraced garden and ficus hedge were added to enclose the area for privacy and banquette seating installed for large parties.

"Working with Garden of Eva made our dream home a reality," says Mary Nayar. "In fact, the combined living space, both inside and out, increased 100%." Echoing these sentiments, her husband says, "Eva provided a great experience and I would recommend her to anyone."
