Old World Charm

2020 Award Winner 

The intent with this project was to meld a partially existing landscape with a stately urban brick home to create a timeless feel. The long narrow lot originally featured an existing natural play are and required a bit of balance near the house in both function and aesthetics. We divided up the space by function creating a space for each one of the elements on our clients wish list.  We wanted all the areas to be distinct yet feel connected to one another.  The kitchen arcs over the dining area, with matching wood against the fence, helping to frame and add thin layers of texture to the space.  The opposing forces of the water feature and fire table are held in harmony by old world brick that seemingly extends out from the walls of the house itself.  

All in all, we love the way this design successfully weaves together numerous elements into a cohesive, old world tapestry, that would not seem out of place in France, Spain or your own back yard.
