What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Houzz Tour: Cabin Studios in the Landscape
Navigating and accessing the 20-foot grade change of the property proved to be Hook’s primary challenge. Extensive grading was something neither the designers nor the homeowners wanted for the site, and meant that little space would be left to design an actual garden. “The opportunities and constraints of a project, though sometimes in opposition, are often the driving forces of the design,” Hook says.
John Hill added this to Modern Design Captures Valuable Rain
I can't help but end this story with at least one green roof, and the Mill Valley Cabins near San Francisco are some of the most exceptional ones on Houzz. The series of green roofs let the cabins merge into the dense forest context.
Maximize green views by "greening" visible roofs. A green roof stocked with indigenous plants calms and de-stresses viewers.
"Scientists don't completely understand why this type of design — known as biophilic — calms us, although research clearly indicates that it does." –– Sally AugustinI love learning a new word! "Biophilic" — never heard of it. Now I have, and it's fascinating. If you've never heard of it either, learn all about it in Augustin's story.Full story: Designing for Pleasure: Savor Your Natural Surroundings
