Hardscape Design - New Home Construction - Sketches Only

  • Status: Closed
  • Prize: $145

  • Winner: svenadler

Contest Brief

We are in the process of constructing a new home, and are looking for some creative assistance in producing a hardscape design for the rear of the home. The home is located in the Northeastern region of the U.S. (below freezing temperatures for 3-4 months out of the year) on a 2 acre wooded lot. I've attached pictures of the front and rear of the home (still under construction) as well as a topographical map of the lot. I also have a basic 3d rendering of the home and the lot / terrain in Blender format -- this will be provided upon request if you feel it will be useful.

The winning contestant will provide concept sketches of their proposed hardscape design that incorporate the elements requested below, and that we feel demonstrate both a creative and functional aesthetic consistent with the design of the home. At the conclusion of the contest, the winning contestant will be invited to produce CAD drawings of the design as a follow-up project provided they have the skills and expertise to do so.

Hardscape design elements:

- Deck (~500 to 750 sqft)
- Deck stair to patio
- Patio (~1000 to 1500 sqft)
- Covered Patio Section (under deck)
- Circular Firepit
- Above Ground Hottub with Halfwall Enclosure
- Half Walls / Retaining walls (as needed)
- Path from hardscape area to front of house

Considerations:

- We have woods to the left and a neighbor immediately to the right as you face the front of the house
- Design should provide some level of privacy from neighbor
- The deck will be accessed via the first floor via double opposing sliding doors
- The patio will be accessed via the walk-out basement floor via double french doors.
- Any existing hardscape elements drawn in on the elevation design or the top should be IGNORED.

    Hi, Can you provide the distribution of the house. Where are the exists and entrances and from which room. Will mean it´s not the same go out from the kitchen than from the living room. Maybe near to the kitchen you need some herbs or vegetables meanwhile near to the living room is better the deck to chill or to be with friends. Do you have children and if yes which age they have. I´m saying that because maybe we have to think about special places for them to play basket or footbol. Separation to your neighbours we can arrange with vegetation. So thanks at the moment and if you please could give me some notice about the distribution

      I've added a comment to your submission privately with a link to the home plans. We do have a 3 year old daughter.

    I have added 3D model data in blend, 3ds, and fbx formats. I believe the 3ds file can be imported into AutoCAD.

    Can you post the CAD Plan files for this project if available with you. We can then work on the plan files and send you back the designs.

      If you send me a private message I'd be happy to provide what I have. I'd rather not post these publicly.

      Hello :)
      We are also interested in the project, we could do a nice job. As arup says, it would be nice to have the CAD files, and we fully understand that you don't want them publicly, but I think we are not able to send private messages :/ How could we get in touch?
      Thanks in advance,
      RED LAMP
