Residence in the Palisades
Back in 2012, project clients purchased a neighboring property and hired KBLA to combine two different and opposing site topographies, as well as introduce a continuous integration of athletic, K-12 play and multi-tier passive recreation program. The property’s steep elevation changes sit within the larger Chesapeake Bay watershed area and design work was conducted to minimize site area runoff and overload of down-stream watershed area management facilities. Proposed project schematics & design development also took account the preservation of existing site vegetation, as well as the mitigation of potential sediment/erosion control sensitivities.
The KBLA scope of design work produced within project was developed complimentary to project building architect design of new porch build-out expansion from existing house, and new two level garage which sits on the far east book-end property location where house on neighboring lot once stood (client purchased parcel to the east and demolished original house). KBLA scope items include the design and layout of proposed plantings, retention of existing native trees, designed adjustments & re-grading of site topography, hardscape elements such as new retaining wall terrace system, pedestrian path / step access, vehicular pavement and site furnishings.
