This neglected backyard has been transformed into a modern oasis with a masterful combination of materials and plant species
This outdoors belongs to the couple Kurt Budnick – administrative director in a designer company and Tom Henriksson – graphic designer. It’s part of her final dream home.
“We contacted the owner and talked to the architect Monica Kuhn. We said to her, as soon as we found the right house, she should redesign it. ”
A year later, they bought a three-storey, semi-detached Victorian-style house and Monica started redesigning it, “The garden they liked in the neighboring yard was fenced and private” – says Monica. “He served as a separate room – dining area and living area in one. The plants were also low maintenance. Your plan – to increase the area, to increase the private sphere.
