Bringing Together Sculpture, Landscape & Architecture

. . . To Fundamentally Enhance Your Relationship with Home & Garden

Modern Kitchen & Laundry Remodel

Bright, Modern Kitchen

My client’s 30-year old kitchen and adjacent laundry room were tired and falling apart. They wanted an ultra modern kitchen but with a touch of warmth.

Sculptural Landscape

This outdoor room is at once dramatic and intimate – providing privacy from a very close neighbor, inviting indoor-outdoor living, and the sounds and fragrance of the modern garden.

Opening Up a 1930’s Cape Code

Opening Up a 1930's Cape

The typical small house built in the 1930’s — with small, cut-off rooms — creates the opportunity for a different type of “great room”. Instead of a single (too often sterile space), we create a “great room” composed of interconnected spaces that blur the lines between kitchen, living, dining and study. This type of opening-up with the existing footprint creates the ability to be together while still engaging in separate activities. It’s an inviting, nurturing type of family life.

Front Parking and Safety

A reconfigured driveway with parking pad, turn-around, stairs, lighting and handrails improves the safety and appearance of a 1940’s home on a busy street.

A Combined Powder Room, Guest Bath & Laundry

Entrance to Powder Room

This combined powder room, guest bath and laundry was a compromise for our client — as are so many remodeling choices. The combined space, though, actually succeeds graciously to fulfill all its functions.

Kitchen Remodel – With Color & Wit

A vibrant, efficient gem of a kitchen connected to the family room.

The shape of this kitchen remodel was determined by 2 major – and unexpected – decisions: first, to NOT expand the footprint of the kitchen, and, second, to use bright red counters.

Backyard Privacy

The Cedar Parking Screen visually keeps the car out of the garden

A custom cedar pergola with ceiling fans keeps mosquitoes at bay. Along with a tapestry of new plantings and a cedar screen, the yard feels at once more secluded and larger.
