Newton, MA

Newton Residence

This landscape creates an immersive environment, seamlessly extending the intimacy and material essence of the interior spaces into the outdoors for the family. Granite stone walls, strategically positioned in both the front and back yard, support the grades to maximize the expansiveness of usable lawn areas and establish a boundary to ensure privacy. A driveway w/ cobblestone banding navigates through these stone walls, meandering towards an upper-level parking court. A lush planting around the parking court for a welcoming arrival experience.

At the back of the house, an inviting outdoor dining area, thoughtfully situated to connect with both the kitchen and the pool house, enhances the flow. Carefully curated plantings in this area contribute to the ambiance, offering not only seasonal interests but also fostering an intimate atmosphere. The pool, strategically placed alongside the pool house, optimizes the lawn space for various activities. The design achieves the dual objectives of making a grand impression upon arrival while providing an intimate retreat at the back for the residents.
