Brookline Traditional, Brookline, Massachusetts
The landscape of this new classically inspired home builds off the architecture to create a series of modern outdoor ‘rooms’, each with a unique character and form. The front entry court creates a raised plinth for the house to receive guests, overlooking the street. The central courtyard is enclosed by a stone dust bocce terrace within a birch allee. The central courtyard unites the house with its first level living areas, with the adjacent pool house and spacious lawn. Overhead string lights and a fire pit round out the minimalist setting. A smaller intimate space with a fountain is found off the study. A green roof helps the pool house recede into the landscape.
