Client: Private Residential
Location: Denver, Colorado
Project Status: Completed Summer 2015
This garden is located in the neighborhood of Krisana Park in Denver, Colorado, which was developed during the mid-century years and provides shelter to well designed homes and an enthusiastic community. The goal of this project was to create an internal courtyard as well as a rear garden to accommodate play areas for the client’s two daughters, as well as an annual party that client throws while playing with his band. The client had recently completed an addition to the house and our arrival marked the beginning of bringing the garden to the same level of design. The garden includes an internal courtyard as well as a rear garden with a hot tub, dining terrace, and playgrounds areas. In true mid-century modern fashion, the ultimate design employs simple geometric forms and an unsophisticated materials pallet, with a softening from perennials and ornamental grasses.
