LGLA’s newly completed landscape for Pasadena’s historic Hindry House made its debut last week at the President’s Circle Reception for the 2017 California Preservation Conference. The five-year transformation of the landmark 1910 Heineman and Heineman Mission Revival estate began with a meticulous preservation and restoration by Kelly Sutherlin McLeod Architecture.

LGLA researched and documented the history of the landscape, which includes the original Craftsman-era setting and a naturalistic swimming pool designed by noted landscape architect Courtland Paul. The landscape design creates new spaces that address the needs of contemporary life while balancing the two periods of significance.

Our congratulations to KSMA and the project team: Steven Keylon, Specialized and Laing, Gagnier Landscape, and Scenic Pool and Spa!

Reminder: The Cultural Landscape Foundation will be hosting its popular Garden Dialogues this weekend. On Sunday, Lisa will be facilitating conversations and lunch at Artecho's Light/Breeze house and garden, then later at EPT Principal, Nord Eriksson's personal garden. Tickets are available here. We hope to see you this weekend!

Lisa Gimmy Landscape Architecture is a professional consulting firm offering master planning, site planning, and landscape design. Since its founding in 1992, LGLA has designed landscapes for schools, campuses, boutique hotels, buildings, public parks, estates, and private residences. At LGLA each project is viewed as an opportunity to explore a series of relationships: between the site and the region, architecture and landscape, and most importantly, between the landscape and the people who will use and enjoy it.
