Kimberly Mercurio Landscape Architecture was featured in an article published in the Cape & Islands edition of New England Home magazine titled, Gardens Of Delight. The homeowner requested a modern design combined with a traditional Cape Cod aesthetic. KMLA worked with Architect Peter McDonald, who replaced a neglected barn with a new, two-story pool house. The new structure's open floor plan and oversized sliding barn doors allow for views from the inside the building and opens the pool house to the outdoors. Mercurio’s landscape design promotes the relationship between indoors and the exterior living space. Plants were kept to a minimum for easy maintenance and a dry laid bluestone that contains thyme joints were used for the terrace and walkways surrounding the inground pool. A privet hedge and wood fence borders the property, acts as a pool enclosure and provides privacy. Reclaimed materials were used to create the outdoor furniture for the dry laid bluestone terrace.
