Weston, MA

Ryan Associates designed a series of gardens around this home’s interior spaces. Visitors first experience the broad welcome of the front entry area’s generous autocourt and stair flanked by a set of piers. A stone terrace is situated off the family room and features a built-in grill and seatwall. Stairs from the terrace lead down to a lower lawn bounded by a stone outcropping which captures views from the living room. Another oval lawn at the side yard becomes the private garden for the home’s study. Finally, just beyond the lawn‘s edge, a children’s play space creates a room of its own under the trees.
