Willmer completely redesigned and relandscaped the backyard. "Houses in the early 1900s were built with a strong presence to the street but the back was totally forgotten," she says. Now, Willmer admits, the house is almost more oriented toward the south-facing garden than the street, but it's a space in which she had more design freedom and that the family is able to enjoy to its fullest.
