This courtyard began as a blank rectangle of concrete surrounded by chain link fence and inhabited by a pair of trash receptacles. The design creates a welcoming space using contemporary metal planters in shades of dark gray. The planters provide enclosure and mitigate the harsh microclimate of the south-facing brick facade. A wooden bench will provide seating, allowing the residents to enjoy their courtyard as a terrace.
More images will be added as work progresses.
