For this project, the main outdoor living areas were designed to showcase the property's views and the natural vegetation was retained as much as possible to honor the context of the site. The existing grade change offered by the site provided opportunity for drama. In order to enhance the harmonious program between the indoor and outdoor living spaces on this unique property, the architectural context of the landscape was integral to the design. The guiding architectural principal is a single radius point from which most of the lines of house emanate. The lines are clean and contemporary and yet the materials are soft and elegant. For the landscape, we chose to take advantage of these elements, in particular gentle curves and wide-angle perspective the architecture presented.
