Basswood Residence

June 4, 2009

Another great design and install project. We’ve been working on this project over the last several years. It’s one of our favorites. Here’s a little taste to show how the gardens are coming along in the front yard. Notice how the steps we designed shift gracefully through the gardens. The gardens are really taking shape. They were planted about a year ago. Keep posted. We’ll get photos of the back soon. IMG_0878 IMG_0880 IMG_0887 IMG_0879 IMG_0883 IMG_0884 IMG_0882


Minneapolis Design Project

August 22, 2008

One of the projects we are currently working on is a residence in Minneapolis; a chartreuse house with a bit of a midwestern farm aesthetic.  The design is very geometric and minimal in its plant palette.   This phase of the project consists of a patio made of concrete pavers set within a grove of birch trees.  Their dog is below… painfully cute.

The following set of pictures show the home before the project began through the end of phase one.  We can’t wait to see the whole thing finished!

This project near Cedar Lake in Minneapolis is one we’ve been working on for a while now.  A beautiful modern home… wow!  This will be the first of a couple posts chronicling the progress and completion of this project.
