Collaboration on an integrated design led to an elegant Danville home near downtown. The structure, complete with gables and dormers, fits beautifully within the context of this traditional neighborhood. Its subdued elegance clearly respects the quiet streetscape, while supporting larger square footage deep within the modest-size lot.
The rear yard houses the auxiliary garage needed for today’s three-car market demand. An office studio within the accessory structure establishes the landscape limits of the newly crafted garden court, which in turn is firmly interlocked into the home’s design, locating the loggia and pool on a main symmetrical axis.
A secondary cross axis is created between the garage/studio building and the outdoor kitchen pergola. The terminus of the main axis is supported by the raised spa fountain, firepit, and arbor. The pool—reminiscent of a Moorish pond—reflects the garden court structures on each side of the loggia, spa fountain, studio garage, and outdoor kitchen. Synthetic turf provides a green, maintenance-free turf terrace surrounding the pool.
