verything outdoors” is the watchword for this contemporary residence on a steep site with distant views of a bay and island. The clients requested a number of outdoor features for family use and entertaining, including an entry courtyard with water feature, al fresco dining, a small lawn where children could play, an outdoor fireplace, and a sport court. The designer created a series of terraces connected by curving staircases and retaining walls, which lend a modern feeling to the site. A creative infinity lawn incorporates a “ha-ha” on one side that offers views of a neighboring meadow, and large boulders in the planting areas reinforce a rugged mood characteristic of this coastal property.
