For this green minded family, creating a comfortable outdoor space was just as important as their indoor space. Place is about making the project the best-it-can-be by engaging other professionals, on site, to incorporate their expertise. Our initial design gave way to a wonderful collaboration with the stone mason. The final design engaged the yard and highlights the local field-stone. This is now the family’s favorite gathering spot.
Drainage and ponding issues had plagued the existing site for years. An underground storm-water management system was installed under and around the new terrace, to channel rainwater away from the upper yard. The terrace, made with local field-stone, sits on bluestone dust (an impervious surface that allows water to drain between the stones) eliminating massive water run-off.
