Our clients were our greatest inspiration for this gracious and comfortable landscape.
A young family with a love of the land wanted to turn a tumbledown, overgrown hillside into a contemporary agrarian setting for entertaining and recreation. Equally important was celebrating the site through preserving all native oak trees and accentuating the panoramic views.
We designed a series of contemporary terraces that respect the natural siting of the oak trees and create dramatic views. The infinity pool became the fulcrum for a series of vignettes for entertainment, relaxation and play. Paths meander through the garden to well-considered areas for recreation, such as the bocce ball court and the stables for the horses. An indoor/outdoor fireplace is a focal point when evening falls and illuminated rows of trees lead the family back to the destination pool house. We worked to incorporate the rustic vernacular of the barn and the pool house with a beautiful, contemplative landscape.
