REMODELED HOME WITH L SHAPED GARDEN



From Christine Chang Hanway


Had to share this post from Remodelista:
If you had a long and narrow side garden instead of a front one, and the opportunity arose to turn it into an L-shaped garden by purchasing a perpendicular vacant lot; would you do it if even if it still meant no front garden?
Evolving urban fabric to suit one's needs often requires the creative knitting together of leftover pieces; a perfect challenge for landscape architect Sophie Robitaille and her architect husband Andrew Curtis, founders of their eponymous firm Robitaille Curtis when they were commissioned by the owner of a 19th-century townhouse in Center City, Philadelphia, that rather uniquely did not front out onto the street.
The original intent was to remodel the kitchen, but when the rare opportunity to purchase the vacant perpendicular lot arose, the designers realized that a much more ambitious remodel was required to fully exploit the relationship between interior and exterior spaces that the new garden offered. The solution? The ground floor and exterior spaces were entirely reconfigured and a new large eat-in kitchen was added to anchor the L-shaped garden.
