2021 WLCA Gold Award of Excellence in Landscape Design & Construction

Our clients purchased the property mainly for its unique configuration with a central courtyard in the back of the home and its unique opportunities for strong visual and physical connections from the interior to the outdoor living spaces. The home was completely re-imagined in collaboration with an architectural team both inside and out. Our challenge was to create a landscape plan that worked in context with the very symmetrical, modern appearance of the home, yet broke from that rigidity to create a softer, more livable feeling within the space. With that in mind, the hardscape features were organized to highlight the central axis, and newly-created visual corridor through the center of the home from front to back. Planting beds were intentionally woven through the space in a very non-symmetrical manner so as accomplish the goal of softening the lines.
