New outdoor living space that blends in.
A complete side-yard renovation project, inclusive of an architecture remodel and addition, this project met the aesthetic-appeal and outdoor living goals of the homeowners. The bluestone terrace allows for outdoor casual conversation seating, a grilling area, and is complemented by a secondary pea gravel dining space, framed in bluestone to carry a cohesive feel to the design layout.
The largest challenge of this project was to create a cohesive union between the new house addition and the existing architecture, while still comfortably blending the hardscape areas so not to seem overwhelming. The simple, evergreen landscape plantings soften the hard lines of the architecture while the perennial pockets and seasonally planted containers add color and interest to the landscape. Additionally, this project (located in a historical area of the city) required that materials and overall design match the original architectural character of the home.
