Venice Modern

Having worked with the owner on her previous, traditional Beverly Hills residence, APLD was asked to create the outdoor environment for a very different lifestyle when she purchased this new, modern home in Venice.

Maximizing space on this small lot in which the primary outdoor space is located in front of the house was the challenge. APLD created an enclosed patio with a large fire element for the owner’s frequent entertaining, using plantings to achieve privacy on both sides of a boundary wall.

Plantings were chosen for their sculptural silhouettes, low maintenance and suitability for a marine environment.
