In The Works

Schlesinger Residence

This courtyard renovation accompanied an addition by Steinbomer Architects. The hardscape treatment consists of stairs to improve circulation around the property. Along the garage, an open wood trellis and screen masks a high foundation line and utilities. The site fence, inspired by the siding patterns of the addition as well as the trellis work on the garage, serves as a unifying element on the site, setting up different levels of transparency. The softscape provides a woodland setting. Existing saplings were cleared to open up light for optimal plant growth.
