A touch of the exotic


The client expressed a preference for an understated aesthetic using high end natural materials and quality finishes. The need for privacy and the illusion of more space were also important requirements.

In order to give this tiny, multipurpose courtyard a spacious quality, we pared down our choices to two main materials throughout the project: warm brown ipé wood, a perfect match for the house’s brick colour, and large pale paving stones. Carefully selected for this limited space, the plantings add a lively, exotic touch.
