The heart of the site plan is a courtyard garden. The central landscape is experienced from multiple levels of the main house & carriage house. A single story covered walkway connects the two structures. By layering the planting and hardscape we were able to create a rich focal element that changes throughout the year. Native vine planting, a sedum green roof, a simple recirculating fountain, and perennial, shrub, and tree layers contribute to the overall experience. Contemporary design elements are paired with traditional materials to strike the right balance between old and new.
