Case Study


Bloomfield Hills Residence

Completed: 2016 Location: Bloomfield Hills, MI Project Type: Mid-size Residential

Working with the existing architecture of the home, a raised patio, and mature trees, this design embraces the natural setting and helps transition the mid-century modern architectural design into the landscape. We created new outdoor living spaces off the renovated kitchen and master bedroom, and removed, transplanted, and refreshed plantings around the back of the home - updating and reinvigorating the space for our client.

  • Built-in brick grill station matches the home
  • Japanese forest grass along a stepping stone walkway
  • Low plant selections ensure that the views looking out from the home remain unobscured
