Luxe RED Award Winner

In other news, Mariani Landscape recently won the prestigious Luxe Interiors + Design Luxe RED Award for its “City Escape” project. Led by Carrie Woleban-Meade, design principal and Joel Mathis, director of Project Management, “City Escape” is an incredible urban design property that boasts outdoor living environments on six levels in the heart of Chicago.

The annual Luxe RED Awards recognize and honor excellence, innovation, and the best residential architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture projects across the country.

“All of our projects are about engaging the client to get outside and enjoy their outdoor spaces”, said Woleban-Meade. “A lot of our planning was centered around maximizing this urban location, using every inch to create an outdoor environment where the client could entertain, dine, have a glass of wine around the fire pit and grow herbs in a fun garden space with their growing family. The client has excellent taste and allowed us to take some design risks including unique elements like the water wall. Our goal was to create an outdoor oasis where the client could enjoy multiple living areas on different levels that provide flexibility, and we’re so excited the family is truly happy in their new space.”

“I am proud to be part of a creative and collaborative team that can design and build such elegant spaces in a small footprint, like this urban environment”, added Mathis. “This home is on multiple levels making construction and planning both challenging and fun. From the veggie garden to the custom copper fireplace to the mural, there are so many different details that make this project stand out. We worked seamlessly with the architect and interior designer of the home as a cohesive team, creating a beautiful and functional space we are all proud of.”
