Padden Creek

An outdoor living space with a southern exposure was in need of shade.

An expansive bluestone terrace now connects two cool microclimates—an elegant gazebo provides shade on sunny afternoons and a second sitting area, surrounded by Sourwood trees, gets use in cooler conditions.

The lotus fountain adds the sound of water, a cooling effect on a warm day and a focal point for the living room view.
