A vast family-owned estate was converted into a complex of multi-family housing enclosing a center garden for exclusive use of its residents. The garden features a pond and a sculpture court, reminding residents of the century-long history of the site and the former estate. A large pitched roof canopy welcomes visitors at the porte cochere and into the entrance hall, where the view of the garden quietly opens up.
