Private Residence

Beautifully sited on a hillside, this landscape design captures the panoramic views of the Bay and City Skyline, while seamlessly integrating the architectural design of this Modern Home with the site’s existing historical remnants from an original Rancho land grant.  The result is a sculptural landscape that provides contemporary scale and context that sensitively preserves the historical elements of the site – the woodlot, the stone retaining walls, historical plantings and the original carriage road.  Piano curve terraces and site walls draw ones gaze out, while bold architectural landscape elements of natural stone frame these outstanding views, presenting them as ‘landscape paintings’ from inside the residence – endlessly transformed through the seasonal interplay of climate and light.  Plantings of drought resistant perennials and shrubs, throughout the orchard and along the paths in the lower meadow create gardens teaming with life, fragrance and colour in which one can enjoy serenity and relaxation.
