Outdoor Space

The mission for this project was to transform a large empty yard into a functional – and beautiful – terrace for entertaining. The owners had a list of “must-haves:” flooring that was sturdy, but couldn’t be “dug” up by their dogs; several areas that worked together, but could be used more intimately with smaller groups; and, finally, indestructibility. With the new access through the old living room fireplace, the new 100+ sq.ft. terrace is a conservatory-like space that has three distinct entertaining areas, anchored by a custom gas firepit and covered by a massive, beautiful clear cedar trellis.
