This modern infill house in Riverdale had a severe slope in the front yard. We addressed this by creating two concrete slab landings suspended above grade on pier footings that seem to float on a bed of Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa). Linking these two landings are two sets of corten steel stairs. An integrated bench on the upper landing creates a space to stop for a rest and say hi to the neighborhood.
