Tale of Transition
This project was designed to fit a contemporary home on a narrow site and provide a transition from the main level of the house to the ground without a large deck and a formidable staircase. A small BBQ deck leads down to a paving stone terrace which provides an eating area overlooking the golf course. The space then flows down on either side to 2 lower courtyards for a variety of entertaining and relaxing spaces. Plant material and retaining walls soften these transitions and minimize the need for railings.
Curves flow through the geometric shapes of this project to make the yard seem much larger.
