Design Visionary: Phil Kelly

McHale Landscape Design

As head of McHale’s Virginia residential design/build division and company COO, Phil Kelly, integrates interior and exterior spaces to create beautiful custom outdoor living spaces.

How has the pandemic affected the future of design?
The pandemic has streamlined the use of technology to share ideas and inspiration. While nothing can replace in-person connections, virtual presentations will become more common, allowing for greater efficiency in our workday.

What is your philosophy on home as a sanctuary?
Nature is synonymous with peace and relaxation. Outdoor living spaces can be a sanctuary, as visual and acoustic elements offer peaceful views and soothing sounds.

How do you create multi-functional spaces?
It takes imagination and creativity to produce multi-functional spaces, and flexibility on the client’s side in terms of their use. A lawn can serve as a bocce court or a perfect spot for your annual crab feast.
