The front entry was in disrepair and posed a serious safety problem with uneven steps, trip hazards and lack of railings. This concern was addressed with sweeping wing walls, custom wrought iron rails and consistent step risers which created a safe, grand and welcoming entrance to the home.
Similar conditions were found in the residences backyard space with a large patio area that was broken into smaller, less inviting spaces. The patio space was redesigned with a large, open space with smaller gathering areas indicated by a natural stone fireplace, stone seating walls and natural cedar fencing. The client utilizes this space for neighborhood gatherings of 50+ people as well as a family respite. This project was completed in 2011.
