UR­BAN COURT­YARD

Outdoor Lifestyle Magazine - - Award Winners -

Some projects are pure joy. At this small ur­ban prop­erty the ma­te­rial pal­let was set in the front­yard with low road­side walling, a re­claimed credit val­ley walk and drive­way bor­ders, her­ring­bone brick in­lays, and lush deep plant­ings. In the back­yard this list was ex­panded on. The pool is walled on two sides with a de­cid­edly old world mix of re­claimed stone and brick. Win­dows re­claimed from the house ren­o­va­tion were in­cor­po­rated into the walling as well as an old stone mask from a New York City de­mo­li­tion. Rooftop gar­dens soften the walls and fil­ter views to the rear. A barn beam ar­bor sits in warm garden beds, defin­ing the din­ing area and pro­vid­ing a lovely spot to en­joy this ur­ban court­yard.
