This project in Lafayette addresses the front yard as well as the central courtyard. Prior to redesign, an extensive driveway dominated the experience of approaching the project site. We restructured the entire front yard to be more welcoming, and introduced an enclosed area with a water feature and a curved wall element as a centerpiece. The residence's courtyard features a harmonized pebble plane, with seemingly floating aluminum rings that articulate bamboo planting. A stainless steel water feature with a riffled water surface mirrors these shapes.
