The owner of an early 20th century DC brick home wanted to create a garden, and had less than 350 square feet.  The "L" shape of the space and a small grade change down from each doorway offered clues for how to make the space feel larger than it was. The new design created different views of the garden from each doorway while employing a limited palette of materials and colors to unify the space. The new garden may be small, but its impact on the client's enjoyment of this living space has been enormous.
