Shelly Crane reminds us, “You are the light in a dark place. You are the water to my drought. You are everything I never knew existed and everything I wanted all at the same time.” That’s how many may view that place we call ‘home’. It’s that place we find refuge; it’s our comfort zone. It’s where we spend large chunks of our time - both inside and out. So when your aim is to perfect where you spend most of your time, it’s important for two (architecture and landscape) to meld together as one.
A seamless sign of architecture and landscape flowing together came from an architect touring one of Greg’s recently completed design projects. “My favorite part was the fact that you worked the grades so that the terrace and the lawn were flush. It felt like the terrace connected to the rest of the landscape. So often we are lifting the house and creating steps down to the lawn.”
This unsolicited comment sums up Crane’s observation best. “You are everything I never knew existed and everything I wanted all at the same time.” It’s two working as one.
