10th & Independence Ave SE
The long and narrow space of this Capitol Hill garden was redesigned to incorporate an intimate sitting area and rear parking. The wooden deck, set at the floor level of the house, and the new double doors provide a seamless connection between the house and garden. The angled orientation of the deck lends a more dynamic layout to the tiny outdoor space. The custom fence featuring a stained glass border conceals the view of the parking area and its overhead gate anchored between two masonry piers.
