Smart Eco Patio Design

Industrial-chic meets eco-friendly in this architect couple's backyard.

As environmentally conscious as it is enchanting, this new home in a downtown Toronto neighbourhood combines the airy, modern feel of a loft with the laid-back vibe of a contemporary garden. Homeowners, architects Janna Levitt and Dean Goodman, placed a trellis over the limestone patio that is made of locally sourced hemlock.
