The original house was lacking a backyard because of the steep slope. The renovation removed soil at the back to create a usable terraced yard that interconnects the two-level residence. The progression through the terraces begins with a seating area adjacent to the master bedroom with steps that lead down to a patio with planting beds. Descending from the patio reveals an outdoor fireplace adjacent to a ground level multipurpose room which open up to the outdoor with glass doors that bring light and breeze from the yard.


“Simon did a wonderful job helping us develop a small backyard into a wonderful subtropical oasis. We now have three functional entertaining areas and an outdoor fireplace. Simon was very easy to work with and helped us realize our vision for our outdoor spaces. We would definitely hire Simon again and we can’t wait for him to help us realized our new master suite in the near future.”
