Barn-inspired modern.
Becky Harris added this to TIN ROOF! RUSTED!
A modern structure inspired by the vernacular. Don't you love that warm rich wood next to the metal roof?
Becky Harris added this to Ornamental Grasses in the Landscape
This entire site plays with mixing vernacular and modern architecture. Case in point: This Mexican feather grass looks as though it could have been plucked from a large field of agricultural wheat, and pokes out from a crisp rectangle cut into the decking. It's a really clever move that helps set the tone of the modern barn-inspired building.
In this example, the long plumes bending over under their own weight evoke the look of a horse's mane and just beg to be touched! The curved line of the grasses is an excellent contrast to the straight, bold lines of the building behind.
