Drawing Inspiration From Harvard and Newport
Inspired by Harvard University, our client in Natick, MA requested a stately Georgian-style courtyard design, based on the classical architecture of Greece and Rome with an emphasis on symmetry, and modest accents. It was constructed of imported natural limestone. In addition to the courtyard, the client asked Dex by Terra to redesign the outdoor living space surrounding their existing pool in the style of Newport mansions.
Criteria given to Dex was for an entertainment area that featured a large patio for dancing, accompanied by an outdoor kitchen, and a large fireplace for use through the summer and crisp fall evenings. The pool deck and patio floor are constructed of silver travertine, and Connecticut white line stone was used for the fireplace and seating walls.
The pavilion which shelters a full, chef’s quality outdoor kitchen was designed by Dex by Terra and constructed of maintenance-free materials.
Because of the property’s proximity to the Charles River, Dex by Terra needed to submit all designs to the Natick Conservation Commission for approval.
