Urban Oasis — Birmingham, Alabama

There is perhaps nothing more charming than an elegant old home in a historic Southern neighborhood. Our mission was to make this home modern-day livable while keeping the spirit of its historic personality.

It was in many ways a blank slate, as it was being completely renovated. It was small inside, but instead of adding indoor space, the client wanted outdoor spaces where he could live, relax, and entertain. The design played off the old world limestone and included connecting the garage to the home by creating a covered living area. Limestone walls and an Alabama blue fireplace gives the space structure while the reflecting pool and gravel patio added a subtle touch of glamour.

The boxwood create clean lines, while the hydrangeas contrast those with structured chaos. The entry courtyard and front porch offer additional spots where the client unwinds at the end of the day in his lush, personal urban oasis.
