Sophisticated Courtyard Retreat

Turn the yard into an enchanting outdoor space.

In the reworked backyard of artist Rundi Phelan's Toronto home, a new entry at the back of the drive consists of a brick wall and cedar gates. Rundi created a studio space in the little-used garage, and french doors open it up to the backyard for indoor-outdoor use.
