Their house is on a beautiful site, but it’s street elevation was of the existing open carport. By enclosing that space and moving the new carport to the side, cantilevering out over the yard, we created a more welcoming entry court.

A fire pit and stone bench take center stage at the entry court, reminding the family to take time out for relaxation everyday.
