Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Its solidness, its integration into the landscape, grounding it into the hillside. A foreverness that is sublime!
This a true example of what I like to think of as an EDGE GARDEN. Edge of what?,,,II'm not sure, but it is the kind of gardening that inspires me, in a struggle against perfectionism You know...perfectionism is for the gods, but I suppose that even the lesser deities would enjoy this placement.
Highly dramatic spatially...making the materials feel intimate with the owners/visitors. Space appears very accessible without compromising the beauty of the materials.
The transparency suggests the vitality of the interior life. Contrast between the charred wood finish and the glass suggests windows but they may not function as opening/closing. Very Nice.
Beautiful ...serenity...with the natural wood tones brought to the siding that gives a grounding to the design.
Everything...it shows a generosity of spirit that is tangible but subtle in making the world a better place. Thanks.
Is the movement taking place..going down...or going up? Hard to determine.
calm and private
Vistas..visual interest in the poles? interesting
Directs to a very special place for solitude. Love the suggested fencing/entrance which is so natural looking that it doesn't intrude on the theme
Stimulation of transition spaces...how we move through passageways fromone space to another.
So well integrated into the landscape...and for all the reasons listed by the owner. Well done!
Amazing design...but how about colder climates? How do these succulents live over winter ?
its mystery...the invitation to come closer, to explore
again...the lantern-like quality
The entire landscape seems to be integrated into the design of the house in a much more complete way.
The scale of the stones in the wall explain my earlier statement. It may be a bit stylized...perfection is for the gods, you know.
we built a deck around an oak tree, but over the years have had to cut away a larger opening as the oak aged and outgrew the opening. Life both energizes and creates more work for the owner. A good thing, I think.

Didn't realize that I was a sentimental person until seeing this silo. It's in the collective unconscious.
awesome size and flowers. Appears to want to be invasive...is that so?
Is this seating comfortable? Not that that would truly seal the deal. The concept and ease is very seductive.
does this curvaceous beauty have a bit of a bounce, or give, to the seat? it appears to be made of molded poly-something or other. Please tell us more.
Dusting would be an issue, but it is very thought-provoking.
Feeling of lightness about this room. Many factors contribute to this, but thinking of choices I've made for books, make me realize I should go back to lighten the look. books can be claustrophobic...in a good way, of course.
The friendliness of books contribute to the feelings of warmth and intellectual curiosity that evoke good food and good conversation.
Retaining that insulates...giving the sense of true grounding of a building, or anything.
Entrance sublimates the sense of EGO that most homes use to present themselves to the public.
excellent use of space, but the excavation of the site must have been "something else". Any comments?
calm but engaging...with the globes being the excitement possibility.
awesome size make it take on sculptural aspects.

vintage stand --sculptural form
Nice, uncomplicated ways of grounding the greenhouse with minimal maintenance.
Like the cages filled with rocks to indicate uses of space.
I appreciate the entire composition of this project.
speaks to the environmental impact of any building project. REMEMBER THIS!
planning for the future.
All this natural beauty ...and economical, too.
