Sometimes you get lucky in life and find yourself part of a design team for the pristine 1770’s replica house up on the hill in your home town. Working with Beyer Architects and the property owner, Method was contracted to provide schematic design through construction documentation for transforming a lower two-acre pasture into an arboretum with trail system (phase 1), and design a new pool deck and outdoor living area (phase 2).
The historic character of the existing home played a large part in the layout and material selection for the new outdoor spaces. Natural stone walls and surfacing were used for the primary pool deck materials to blend-in seamlessly with the existing structures on site. The resulting design and materials palette has a rustic yet contemporary aesthetic that nods at the 1700’s architecture, yet has all the modern amenities.
