Side gardens aren't just about the garden floor; they're also about the vertical plane: the walls, so to speak. That notion is expressed beautifully here. Sustainably harvested ipe boards, installed horizontally, alternate with sections of stucco to enclose and retain the side garden.
This is a well-furnished room with benches for seating, pockets for plants and even a fireplace treatment. There's a graphic rhythm to this space that makes it enjoyable both to view and to spend time visiting in.
