Courtyard Garden – Chicago, IL

The courtyard garden of this Gold Coast residence compliments the character of the gallery like interior of the home. Limestone pavers are placed with intention giving rise to linen-white aluminum containers set to follow the pavers’ random pattern. Plant selections are chosen to contrast in form and texture with the dominant ivy-cladded brick wall. The controlled palette of materials paired with the open-air access of the courtyard creates a sense of calm and expansiveness.
