SF Retro Modern

An Eichler remodel with a steep hillside garden. This project pushed the limits of creating flat space where there was none! The angular architecture of the garden is balanced with bold and textural free form plantings. Color, texture and juxtaposed angles.

Embrace funny spaces. Make them work to your benefit. Use interesting lines to offset the oddity of the space.
