The former home of Emeril’s Homebase was purchased by clients who wished to renovate the ground floor and construct a garage at the rear of the site. Having recently moved to the Central Business District area, and beginning to have thoughts of starting a family, they were enthralled with the idea of having a grassy backyard hidden among the brick and concrete that surrounded them. NANO designed a garage which is separated from the rear wall of the building, allowing light to get into the new first floor bedroom, and covered the roof with greenery that can be accessed immediately upon exiting the building on the second floor. Additional green walls climb the surrounding brick surfaces, creating a garden retreat in the heart of the urban environment.
