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.
