If you have an opportunity to pick up the current issue of New England Home magazine, take a look at the beautiful story about our Brattle Street Garden by Kyle Hoepner and Megan Fulweiler, featuring photos by Laura Moss and yours truly! The piece captures the essence of our design collaboration with architect Adolfo Perez and interior designer Manuel de Santaren. The landscape, built by Martin Lucyk Landscape Construction, boasts custom-designed, minimalist-inspired elements that complement the home’s exquisite craftsmanship, by S+H Construction. MCLD thanks all of it’s partners and collaborators who helped make this property shine, and most importantly, we thank our clients, whose elevated tastes pushed us each to craft spaces that fully reflect your exceptional sense of style. Last but not least, thank you NEH for the press!

In all seriousness, we are grateful to New England Home for featuring our Waban Hillside Residence in a lovely piece written by Debra Judge Silber, and produced by Kyle Hoepner. In spring of 2014 when our clients reached out to us about their project with Paul MacNeely and Tim Stewart of Eck MacNeely Architects, we jumped at the opportunity to create a lush, garden-focused home on the sloping hillside site in Newton. As the project quickly evolved, it was evident we had the ultimate dream-team of professionals, from Jennifer Palumbo Interiors, Wellen Construction, and last but in no way least, Paragon Landscape Construction.
Thank you Greg Premru for your beautiful photographs, and congrats to everyone involved in the project. When and where is our next one?!
We don’t frequently have many opportunities to design landscapes with tennis courts, but for our Valentine Park project in West Newton, we pulled out all the stops…
We are very proud to announce that the project has been named “2014 Facility-of-the-Year” in the Residential Tennis Court category by the American Sports Builders Association (ASBA). The extensive list of collaborators for this project includes LDa Architects, Wellen Construction, Phil Mastroianni Landscape Construction, and Boston Tennis Court. I would be remiss not to mention the beautiful fence and pergola installation completed by Walpole Woodworkers. Thanks also to Roome & Guarracino, LLC, Columbia Design Group, Snelling and Hamel Associates, Nina Farmer Interiors, Maverick Home Integration, and Michael Lee Photography for each of your contributions to the project.
We are delighted to share very exciting news that our “Longwood Garden” project in Brookline, Massachusetts has received press in the 2014 November/December issue of New England Home magazine! “Small Treasure,” thoughtfully written by Paula M. Bodah, provides a focused description of the new landscape from the homeowner’s perspective—especially as it relates to their goal of creating a non-fussy, yet vibrant urban lifestyle.
The garden has been warmly received by the Boston Society of Landscape Architects and won a 2014 Merit Award for Residential Design; it was also celebrated as a 2014 “Suburbia Transformed 3.0” award-winner from the James Rose Center in Ridgewood, New Jersey. MCLD enjoyed a great collaboration with the homeowners and the architects, Stern McCafferty Architecture and Interiors, and we are thankful to have been part of such a great team. A huge thanks goes to Martin Lucyk Landscape Construction for their commitment towards building the garden, as well as to Brite Builders for their efforts to create such a special home. Last but not least, thank you New England Home for showing our work off to your audience in this issue!
Congratulations to Boston Home Magazine’s Senior Editor, Rachel Slade, and everyone involved in the fantastic piece featuring MCLD clients Scarlett Bartlett and Adrian Gill! Joyce Lee’s stunning photos creatively showcase the wonderful mid-centruy modern home and garden in Medford. MCLD has had the pleasure to collaborate with this fashionable couple in the restoration of “Hastings Lane” since 2004.
