The homeowners wanted to have a new patio constructed in the garden that would allow them to entertain larger groups both inside and outside their small home. We constructed a new seven foot tall wall surrounding the rear yard and suggested the owner install new doors that allowed you to enter the garden from every private room in the house, making the garden an actual extension of the spaces inside. We designed a large patio to be located in the middle of the garden which provided sufficient room to place a large table with seating for up to twelve. Other patios were placed in the garden at the new doors connecting to the interior rooms. These patios provide lots of places for individuals, couples, or small groups of people to sit and have a conversation. We collaborated with glass artist Duncan McClellan to create a beautiful, colorful etched glass vase that became the main feature of a new wall fountain placed alongside the dining area patio. The vase was positioned high on the wall outside the kitchen where it could be easily seen throughout the garden and within the home.
