A bird's-eye view of an intimate courtyard garden allows us to see where shapes and masses interrelate with perfect harmony. First you notice the rectangular stepping stones and deck shapes, then the three-dimensional versions emerge in the Cor-Ten planter box (left) and the poured-concrete planter (right). The decorative fountain wall infuses another mass into the scheme. While this environment is small in scale, it feels voluminous. Add one more shape: the curved chaise, a graceful footnote to all the geometry here.
