Location: Marin County, California
Architect: Stanley Saitowitz
The landscape design utilizes restraint and minimalization to relate to the modern architecture of the home. New plantings of California native grasses and perennials, along with large specimen Coast Live Oak trees and Coast Redwoods are used to blend into the site's natural environment. Special treatment is given to the restoration of the existing seasonal creek, which runs under the house, and native grass hillsides, where trails lead to a pool, bocce ball court, and surrounding open space.
