The three structures are linked by a covered walkway and surround a north-facing courtyard protected from coastal winds. There is no fence to encourage interaction with neighbors.
Garden and greenhouse
Transitional spaces were key in the design.

The goal of the remodel was to preserve the home's classic look, while also updating it.
Large, sliding glass doors connect the interior living spaces to the garden, while drawing in plentiful daylight.
 An entrance hall, gallery, and double-height staircase connect the two wings, which frame views of the serene garden.
Private garden with deck
“I can’t believe a lot like ours exists, because it’s so beautiful. Our backyard ends on the edge of an 80-foot cliff, and the property line is such that we could conceivably cantilever the new house fifteen, maybe even twenty feet off the edge. The great potential for me architecturally is to be able to design a space that will bring a whole new level of dialogue between the interiors and my objects. We’ll probably get more animals, too. It’s going to be a total dream.”
The west patio
Fashion designer Josie and her husband Ken Natori are big fans of traditional Japanese architecture, so when Brooklyn-based practice Tsao & McKown Architects designed their home in Pound Ridge, New York, they used a heavy, exposed-timber structure, and included Japanese-style gardens and landscaping.
The juxtaposition of old and new architectural forms is best viewed from the courtyard between the garage and playroom. Timber shingles and vertical boarding can be seen on the sun-shading and sub-floor skirt of the villa respectively—these subordinate materials of the historic architecture are given primary roles in the new design.
Cole worked with two landscape companies, Sydney Organic Gardens and Pepo Botanic Design, to create the plant and vegetable gardens and other permaculture features.
The courtyard pool.
The outdoors is easily accessed from every room, showcasing a mix of large specimen trees, drought tolerant plants, and decomposed granite and river rock.
A lounge space looks onto a calming moss garden and provides the perfect zen setting to relax with a cup of tea.
Each features its own custom teak soaking tubs placed under illuminating skylights. Balancing touches like sand-colored, full-height limestone walls evoke a California spirit.
No two suites are the same, and the modernized rooms are artfully designed to incorporate Japanese elements, such as tatami mats and shoji screens.
Pool, garden
The courtyard-like area connecting the old and new building is a favorite spot for outdoor gatherings.

The apartment comes with a 1,500-square-foot landscaped terrace with stunning views of the city, along with two smaller patios (one off the master bedroom).

Behind her is the greenhouse, where Lynn starts vegetables like lettuce, Swiss chard, and tomatoes. Landscape architect David Hocker defined the sunken fire pit area with Cor-Ten steel.
Trainor planted native grasses and yarrow as a visual buffer between the house and the natural site. Feldman chose Douglas fir beams as the board forms for the site-poured concrete walls. “The rough texture of the concrete helps tie the house to this dynamic and wild setting,” he says.
This Dallas gem is set against a dramatic backdrop and offers breathtaking views from every room.

It is all about contemplating the nature

The main living space and the entry-level interior of the house offer a view of the horizon, sea and local topography. The house features an impossible light steel frame and concrete footings to support the cedar box that contains the living space. From the living room, the owners can capture a 180 degrees view, due to the panoramic windows. The bedroom offers an axial and longer view across the cliff that parallels with the coast.
