Projects: Elevated Addition
With this new build in Edina, the clients were interested in adding an outdoor extension to their new home. We had the opportunity to create and build from scratch as their existing landscape was open lawn. The project goals were to add a gathering and dining space for family and friends with easy access from the home and yard.
We installed an elevated patio retained by fieldstone boulders. To navigate the grade change we used molded concrete step units to compliment the blend of manufactured concrete pavers and inlays of natural limestone rugs. A cedar pergola was incorporated to provide a sense of privacy to the dining space. We balanced the patio space with a modular veneered fireplace to give the family a chance to relax and roast some marshmallows after dinner.
