Upper Arlington Residence


This beautiful home had a less than beautiful landscape to match. The overall masterplan orients the eye to the exterior of the home. We proposed new connections to the exterior of the home and attempted to pull and stretch the interior programming of the home outward. In the front a formal landscape was proposed with a central courtyard  sitting space and bold movements of plant material to create a sense of symmetry and permanence from the street.   In the rear we proposed an outdoor kitchen with an edible garden surrounding. The owner is a chef and she intends to use the rear yard as an outdoor test kitchen!
