A prime lot in a venerable Los Angeles neighborhood was just what our clients, a design-focused family, were looking for as they set out to craft a stunning new home. Influenced by a love of Italy, this town garden maximizes the site with a series of living spaces in the front, side, and rear yards. Contemporary classicism pervades the home and gardens resulting in tailored outdoor settings that marry beauty, functionality, and serenity. Garden rooms with floors of limestone, basalt, and brick, along with walls of manicured hedges, iconic Olive trees, and a healthy dose of thoughtful lighting add up to a handsome marriage of Old World and timeless modernity…and a gracious setting for family life and entertaining friends and family.
