Share |

Project Category: Residential 

Project Name:  Re-imagining a Mediterranean Revival Styled Landscape for the Modern South Florida Based Family 

Project Location: Palm Beach, Florida 33480 

Date of Completion: 2010

Landscape Architect: Mario Nievera , Nievera Williams Design


Owner: Mitchell & Hilarie Morgan 

Landscape Contractor: Armstrong Landscaping  

When the landscape architects first arrived for their initial interview, the landscape surrounding the historic residence was overgrown and outdated.  The landscape architect worked closely with the architect, general contractor, and client to develop a landscape program that would allow for family enjoyment & numerous house guests, yet be respectful to the Mediterranean revival styled architecture of the building. The landscape architect designed all of the outdoor spaces to accommodate entertaining and relaxation, yet left enough open green space for view and interest.

Ill-placed fountains and a swimming pool were carefully re-used and re imagined to become a part of the unfolding landscape experience. A contemporary feel is achieved through simple ground plane treatments of texture and color that keep a youthful, fresh, and modern feel in the landscape.
