As staying in is the new going out, serene outdoor spaces like these designed by PBA are in greater demand. Clients place more emphasis on outdoor multi-functional areas, which can be used for relaxing, eating, playing and even working.

Bottom: The most recent of multiple projects at a Baltimore County estate, was the creation of a conservatory and covered porch addition, which included the creation of a water feature focal point at the end of the axis of a loggia. This loggia also serves as a means of providing privacy for a new hot tub nestled against the house. Photo by Heidi Krauss.
