Drake Residence

Landscape Architecture

The client asked Phronesis to re-imagine his front yard and home entry experience. Inspired by the direction of the client and the materials and forms of the house, we developed a landscape plan that is better suited to the site and daily ritual of the homeowner. Simple forms of concrete, weathered steel, wood, and grass extend the lines of the house and carve out usable outdoor spaces. The design incorporates green solutions such as rain gardens, native plants, and material reuse into a strikingly modern aesthetic.
