Architect Barbara Bestor transformed this house from a tarpaper shack into a contemporary architecture showpiece. We designed a garden to match, extending the architectural program into the backyard with a large outdoor living/dining room.  The front courtyard is anchored by a concrete koi pond and framed by a flowering, vine-covered pergola.  At the front edge of the property, between the fence and the pergola, lies a secret children’s garden with sandbox, climbing rock, swings and vegetable beds.

This project has been featured in both the New York Times and Domino Magazine.
