Better Homes and Gardens polled their readers to find out what features would be most desirable in a home built for the new century. The common theme from readers was low-maintenance, flexibility and comfortable living. To that end, we used our creativity to create a natural blend between the home and its outdoor environment. We also carefully selected plants that would work well not only for the new homeowners, but for the photography angles used in the magazine layout.
The staff at Better Homes and Gardens impressed upon us their appreciation for our high-quality design and our hands-on attention to its customers' needs. In addition, Mark W. Kirby of Dixon/Kirby & Company, Inc. said the following...
Following completion of the project we learned that the magazine decided to partially shift the focus of the editorial coverage to reflect more of the exterior of the home than was originally planned. It was an honor to know that we had not only met our own personal goals for this project, but exceeded the expectations of those with whom we worked.
This project was also featured in NC State Alumni Magazine. Three of the participants in this program house, Brian Dixon of Dixon/Kirby & Company, Inc.; Bill Adams, Jr. of Southern Landscape Professionals, Inc.; and Rex Pace of the Center for Universal Design all graduated from North Carolina State University.
