Mid-century meets modern

This courtyard garden extends the living space of a mid-century home in Shoreline. Architectural concrete walls impose strong lines in the landscape and enclose the space while allowing it to breathe. Reclaimed timber beams are a counterpoint in both warmth and time to the concrete and steel. The floor of the space features 19th century ballast bricks and rough granite from 21st century China.
