In this compact town within the Memorial area of Houston, lay an unused and unsightly residence prior to its redesign. The space is found in a narrow gap and was completely paved over with a mismatch of two paver types. A custom landscape design was made with a southwest tequila theme stretching from the adjacent family room space out to their new outdoor lounge area.
The design included a built-in planter as a minimally invasive solution to reinvent the space. Including this brought life and a new aesthetic into the space. Additionally, landscape detailing was able to elevate the outdoor space while providing a reinvented space for entertainment or leisure.
The space is filled with a southwest xeric mix of plantings in stone beds with feature agaves to continue the tequila theme. This project utilized xeriscaping and a reinvented landscape design to preserve the surrounding environment. Not only was this a sustainable design, but a new life was brought to this outdoor lounge area.
Unique Design Elements:
The air conditioning system is hidden with a unique wood fence while buffering vertical plantings. This specific design allowed the space to blend naturally while also creating an ability to sustain its outdoor entertainers.
To fit the intended theme unique to the client’s request, custom furniture and a decorative centerpiece was included in the design. This furniture design allows the client and their guests to feel a sense of welcomeness. Including these custom furnishings provides a sufficient area for relaxation as well as entertainment.
To tie together the space, TDG designed a custom art piece, as a focal backdrop to the new lounge area, on the newly refurbished cedar fences escalating this outdoor space greatly.
