This property had a lot of space, but it needed to be shaped and made into meaningful, liveable areas. For one of the areas, we proposed adding a wide staircase leading to the garden, creating a sense of flow. For the second area, we designed a unique keyhole-shaped sunken patio with stone steps—great for intimate dinners under the stars.
We “faced” all the existing walls with rock and hand formed and poured all the walls with a cement cap. Lights installed in the walls create dramatic night-time ambiance.
We approached the planting with a Tuscan landscape in mind, bringing in two types of Lavender that play off the soft beige tones of the patio’s slate. An ideal spot for a small dinner party.
