Site: This lakeside lot consists of a steep slop, drenched in sunlight. We were tasked with integrating a new home into the site and creating level, useable spaces.
Solution: Collaborating with the architect and homeowner, we created outdoor rooms that take advantage of the magnificent lake views. The front entry melds a woodland setting with the home through the use of granite steps, natural stone and native plantings. The focal point of the garden is a large Mediterranean Terrace sliced through by a bubbling rill that drops to a hot-tub garden room below. Mosaics and tile are integrated into the fountain walls, hot tub and paving creating a lively, warm thread that runs through the garden spaces.
