  • This single family residence was designed for a young couple who recently purchased a vacant corner lot in the Arbor of Great Hills community. Using Vastu guiding principles, the form of the house defines a central communal core area. The core area consist of an outdoor patio with an integrated conversation pit for lounging around the fire and watching movies, a BBQ island, and outdoor dining area.

    Tall, natural grasses landscape the front yard to sync harmoniously with the existing Live Oak trees that surround the perimeter of the site. A series of 6' high gabion walls berm the sloping topography to define a private side yard garden sanctuary to help separate it from the adjacent commercial property.
