Nick Lehnert – Expert Outdoor Living Tips from a Maracay Design Partner

The Maracay Blog

January 18, 2016

Maracay Homes is privileged to work with some of the best in the business when it comes to creating thoughtfully designed floor plans that answer the needs and wants of today’s buyers.

This month, Nick Lehnert, head of KTGY Architecture + Planning’s Market Research and R + D Design, shares his thoughts about outdoor living spaces in the January 2016 issue of Professional Builder magazine. If you’ve ever visited our Victory at Verrado neighborhood, you’ve seen KTGY’s handiwork incorporated into home designs that capture the heart and soul of active-adult Arizona living – including abundant indoor-outdoor living spaces.

According to Nick, the best outdoor spaces follow these guidelines:

  1. Privacy is a priority
  2. The scale is relative to the rest of the house
  3. Indoor and outdoor spaces co-exist in logical, livable layouts
  4. Cost sensitivities are taken into account
  5. Upstairs spaces are not overlooked
