Apiary Studio

Husband and wife architects hired Hans to develop a tiny interior courtyard design that could thrive in a low-light environment and provide seasonal interest beyond a traditional evergreen carpet.Hans carefully selected plant material, mixing evergreen and deciduous perennials with an espaliered Southern Magnolia trained to a courtyard wall. Specimen plants emerge from herbaceous drifts and staggered bloom times create a garden with year-round interest. Mixing bold moments with a traditional composition, the garden design is intended to compliment the highly-crafted home renovation that converted a beautiful old carriage house to a sumptuous modern residence.
