The master bedroom embodies this connection – on one side, a window opens out to new plantings in a mezzanine level courtyard, and on the other, new full height glazing allows the owner to gaze out over the dining area below to the canopies of honey locust trees beyond, as well as to a favorite feature of the new design: a custom interior planter with Algerian Ivy that will grow to layer a pattern of green over a double height masonry wall of the dining room, a call-out to the numerous ivy covered facades of the neighborhood.
