Overall Vision

This garden is a transformative study of form and volume. It begins solidly in and of the earth, with strong rectangular forms arising and containing water, plantings and passage. The resulting garden feels powerful, monumental and visually compelling.

Garden and house are linked at two elevations. Space is created and maximized by the stacking of program functions. Long views are made accessible from the deck above, while visual focus is created in the main garden.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo

I believe the deck is aluminum and it was bundled with the Architect's scope of work so I don't have pricing info.
