Sculptural Wall

A refined material palette modernizes this conventional 60′s ranch-home’s yard. Repetition of materials like stone, ipe and concrete combine beautifully to form a bold and contemporary garden.

Layered walls perform double duty as both sculpture and a way to define gathering spaces. Contrasting leaf textures and hues harmonize with the hardscape, and plant masses add their colorful statement to the canvas.

Are those precast concrete benches? Or how were they made?

I agree that this is probably not precast but I don't think that this would be drywall since it is outside in the elements. I think it is probably just masonry and stucco work reenforced with rebar and anchored into a footer. The wood element directly behind the bench probably also has some fasteners that are hidden but add additional support. Either way it's a good looking place to sit. Well done Arterra.

Nothing precast about this, all custom made on site. Concrete walls with stucco finish and a cantilever bench.
