An Ode to Architecture

This client’s modern house was designed by Fred Shellabarger in 1974. Shellabarger was a Professor of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma from 1955- 1981 and was well-known for his excellent work.

We worked with the homeowners to design and install the last piece of their major home remodel: The courtyard. In keeping with the modern architecture of the house, we designed and built a modern courtyard outdoor living area. At the center of the space, we included durable, high-quality artificial turf along with a custom fire pit and water feature. Underground, we installed an intricate system with hundreds of feet of drainage to allow water to rapidly exit the courtyard. The landscape lighting system was designed and installed to illuminate the beautiful architecture of the home as well as the trees and walkways leading to the courtyard. For the patio, we used a salted concrete finish with artificial turf inlays.

The finished product resulted in a modern usable space for kids to play and for the family to entertain. Our design and install teams were able to maximize the outdoor area, enabling the homeowners to enjoy the space year-round! Working on such a historical home was a privilege for our team.
