This home renovation is set in a charming neighborhood. The design team and owner worked in collaboration throughout the entire design and construction process. The architectural concrete steps create a rhythm that engages the visitor with the landscape and sets the palette for the interior of the home. The private garden accessed from the living space, has visual connections to the Japanese Maples beyond. The existing green hedge was encouraged to thrive at a taller height to create a green wall, enclosing the garden to form a space and terminate views from the building.
