This projects consists on creating an attractive curb appeal to enhance the value of the house.
The design aims to provide a new front yard and entrance way for the house. A crucial element of the design is the organization of different zones and functional areas such as: the driveway, the entry walk, the siting area (outdoor area), front yard,and the path leading to the deck and back yard zone.
The existing driveway is proposed to be moved into a linear path placed on the right of the parcel, that will serve for parking. The driveway will serve as the only way to get into the house. One important element of the front yard is the existing tree in front of the house. The design doesn' propose to move this big tree first because it has a very important function, to prevent the building from sunset heating, and in our understanding it represents an identity for this house. Considering its position and presence, all the front yard design is adapted relating the tree influence.
The curb appeal design attempts to create through landscape elements an intimate entrance, to extend visually the distance from the sidewalk to the entrance, but also to be noticed. This is realized by adding a row of small decorative flowers in the front line of the plot, next to the tree. Building patio, the driveway and the decorative flowers create a lawn in the middle. That is why a sitting area is placed after the entry walk. This area is as much opened (as it has a visual communication with the road) as private (intimate as it is distanced physically from the road access).
The design of the front-back yard landscaping with all its elements is shown in this figure. The materials used for paving are concrete steps pads and concrete paving for the driveway. While all the other area is covered with lawn and mostly decorative plants.
