Backyard Home & Hearth

Simple in scale, yet huge in comfort and enjoyment, this design transformed a plain backyard into an inviting and beautiful place to relax with friends and family.


After settling into their new home, the owners wanted to make simple, yet impactful additions to convert their back yard into an outdoor space they could enjoy year-round.


With nothing more than a sodded lawn and an uncovered patio as the canvas, we designed around their existing property grade to create a visual boundary where multiple amenities could be stylishly integrated.


A stylish pathway now leads to the focal point: an inviting outdoor fireplace with a comfortable seating area. The existing retaining wall was extended to add visual interest and depth. The covered patio was converted to a living area and screened in for year round enjoyment.
