The art of architecture is a pursuit to merge beauty and function at every level. Every design decision we make has to answer two key questions: “does it work in its context?” and “is it beautiful?” That includes the backyard.
Designing a Durable Family Home
Meydenbauer Place was crafted for a busy family with kids. As we explored their needs and desires for their home design, it became evident that durability was key. From countertop materials to the kids wing layout, local architect Scott Hommas carefully merged form and function for daily living.
The backyard was no exception.
At the client’s request, the Gelotte Hommas Drivdahl team worked with landscape architects to select and install quality, life-like artificial turf in the backyard.
The artificial turf provides the clients with a low-maintenance, high-functioning outdoor space. Unlike grass, the turf doesn’t require mowing, weeding, or watering. Yet the turf still looks and feels like grass—like a space ready for the best of summer family fun.
As we approach every architectural design, we look wholistically at the project. Landscape architecture is never an afterthought. It’s a consideration that informs and factors into the design of the home itself. Contact us to learn more about integrating exceptional outdoor spaces into your home design.
