This courtyard design required great attention to detail, scale, and awareness of the historic context of the site. The end result is a beautiful backyard sanctuary that respects the historic nature of the residence to create a wonderful outdoor living space.
Design on a small site presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Through careful selection of hardscape, plant materials, and spacial arrangement, the site can feel much larger than it really is. Vertical plantings help to create a comforting sensation of enclosure, while well designed hardscape patios and paths make the space very functional. The end result is a design that compliments the historic setting of the site while creating a truly enjoyable yard for relaxation and entertaining.
