eichler in marinwood

at the larger scale of the property existed a desire to soften and deepen the engagement between the house and the street frontage. as such, the landscaping palette consisted of textures chosen for subtlety and granularity. spaces were layered by way of planting, diaphanous fencing and lighting. the interior engages the front of the house by insertion of a floor to ceiling glazing at dining room.
jog-in path to house from street maintains a sense of privacy and sequential unveiling of interior/private space. this non-atrium model was invested with the best aspects of the iconic eichler configuration without compromise to the sense of order and orientation.

Is that Salt and Pepper Granite in the driveway? Can you please tell me where you can order that from? And if there is a support system below? Looks great and is a nice alternative to concrete!

Mary Jo Bowling added this to Houzz Tour: A Marinwood Eichler Evolves
The Shoup family moved into a nonatrium Eichler. Stephen created his own courtyard by installing a fence with horizontal planks in the front yard. “Most Eichlers have vertical slat siding,” he says. “We experimented with the fence by taking the same-size slats and turning them on their side, and we think it works great.” Taya, who works at a landscape architecture firm, chose drought-tolerant grasses and olive trees for the front garden.Exterior paint: Rocky Coast, Benjamin Moore
“The Shoup family moved into a nonatrium Eichler. Stephen created his own courtyard by installing a fence with horizontal planks in the front yard.” — Mary Jo BowlingSometimes we forget how much design potential our front yards have. A front courtyard creates a true outdoor room and enhances the sense of entry. It also improves the facade on this home, in my humble opinion.Full story: Houzz Tour: A Marinwood Eichler Evolves
