16 Legare Street

The garden at 16 Legare Street embodied Briggs’ creation of a series of “outdoor rooms” that complemented the interior spaces of the home gardens he designed. The vegetable and cutting gardens were separated by brick hardscape and were analogous to the kitchens and living rooms inside the home.
