Japanese Cottage

This 38 foot wide lot confronted JGS with a narrow canvas to work with.  A 45 degree twist was incorporated to lengthen sight lines and give the garden room a greater sense of space.

 

The entry to the home was redesigned to subdue the garage; breaking the driveway with turf planted over a subsurface structure able to support cars.

 

A lush garden seating room equipped with a fire pit was designed in the front yard utilize an often untapped outdoor space.  Using the house as a powerful windbreak from the Pacific winds, this gave the clients more options for outdoor entertainment on windy days.

 

In the back of the house, a hot tub was installed with a spilling water feature across from a vibrant at-grade fire pit creating 2 focal points that carry one’s eye across the garden.  These 2 design features also provide a visual play between the juxtaposing elements of fire and water.

 

The patio is encircled by as ipe bench banded by a lush ring of Mexican Weeping Bamboo, disguising property line fences and providing guests with a cozy private feel.
