Queen village backyard

This project was a major transformation in the Queen Village section of Philly, prior to our build this was just a concrete patio with random patio furniture. Now it’s a great outdoor space for entertaining. Ipe bench and dining table with removable leaf, cedar fencing, cedar cabinets with built in fridge/wine fridge, drop in BBQ grill, sink, granite counters, ceiling fan and blue stone pavers.







Backyard Ipe Deck

This deck was built in the Art Museum area of Philly. The deck and privacy walls are made using Ipe, a very dense Brazilian walnut. Ipe has the same fire rating as concrete and steel, and is so dense it does not float in water. It is time consuming to work with because all holes need to be predrilled for screws, but the results are beautiful and extremely durable.

Shift Design

Here is some product design work I did for a local company in Philadelphia called Shift_Design. When I started they were making mostly just their rain collection tank, after a few years with them we designed a whole line of products for the urban yard, from fire pits and herb gardens, to living wall systems and roof gardens. We also did quite a bit of installs and collaborations with other companies in the city. To see more please visit SHIFT_DESIGN.
