Location: Mill Valley, California
Architect: Buttrick Wong Architects
The landscape features the use of raw materials and geometric forms to play off the asymmetric geometries of this contemporary house. Alongside the driveway, runs a sinuous limestone wall. Vertical horsetail plants grow below the wall and vertical Corten steel fence pickets are set above the wall, as a design feature and deer deterrent. Corten steel planters with mature Olive trees are set on the hillside. A fire pit terrace provides a space to sit and enjoy the panoramic views from the property.
