Urban Townhouse | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The intent of this project was to create a formal suite of entertaining rooms and gardens that allow the owners and their guests to enter graciously whether from the service alley and garage or from the formal entrance at the street. The gardens, including a garden installed on the new garage roof, were designed primarily to be enjoyed from within the house or in walking to the garage. Densely planted, they include a water-lily pond, fountain wall and connecting loggia. Special attention was given to the paving patterns to enhance the walking experience and to the selection of plants for their blooms.
