(Philadelphia County) PA
A sleek contemporary design for a new home in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia has taken shape.
Textural blocks of plants set against coursed bluestone paving provide interest and structure to this large garden space. The home, designed by Christopher Beardsley Architects and built by Archway Builders, has clean lines, rich materials, and well balanced volumes.
Mark Paronish and Michael LoFurno set out to complement the architecture with a design reminiscent of mid-century landscape architecture while using local stone and a blend of plants suited to the urban environment.
Two lawn areas provide soft play spaces for the two children while the patio provides room for the grownups to cook, dine, and relax. Low-voltage lighting provides night-time security and ambiance. Automated irrigation takes the work out of day to day enjoyment of the space. Textured steel, natural Pennsylvania flagstone, and Delaware River stones play against the clean lines of the International Modern style of building.
