Cadence worked with the homeowners and architect, Jack Arnold, from the onset of the project. Cadence assisted in selective clearing of the initial home site, sited the new home and selected the proper finish floor elevation for the structure to achieve a balanced cut and fill scenario while ensuring the back pool terrace feature worked seamlessly with the u-shaped foot print of the home. The final plan respects the existing lay of the land and existing signature trees have been integrated into the landscape design. The client’s master gardener background and a strong vision for melding french country garden design with classic Louisiana garden design elements were brought to fruition throughout the one acre site. Cadence developed all hardscape and exterior wall and gate elements in close collaboration with the tone the architect set forth for the home. The final product is a design that provides adaptive outdoor living spaces that are comfortable and intimate for family gatherings, yet capable of accommodating entertainment of large events.
