Ross Residence

This project began with the need to replace a dark, depressing  fence and retaining wall.  The final design replaced those with a sense of permanence that also made them places that beckoned one to engage in the outdoors.  The hardwood fences and gates invite one to slide your hand along the edges of the garden, while the stone fireplace and barbecue make the narrow backyard a precious place for entertaining that  is at once inviting and comforting as the attention to the details and needs of everyday life unfold along the space.
