Brookline Residence II

The request for an outdoor wood burning pizza oven in the heart of a residential neighborhood in Brookline, evolved into an open-air cooking, dining and living space. The new outdoor kitchen features an authentic Italian pizza oven, a stainless-steel grill equipped with burners and rotisserie, warming drawers, storage cabinets, a refrigerator, beer tap, and granite countertops.

Existing grades of earth were pushed away from the house, sculpted and reshaped, to provide a larger outdoor living area. Fieldstone retaining/sitting walls and antique bricks were used to articulate the structure of space. New plantings, a water feature, irrigation, and outdoor lighting were all incorporated to complete the project.
