Exposed to the elements, this modern architecture is set into a west coast landscape of thick stone slab retaining walls, with broad steps between levels. Tough native species and ornamentals blend into a coastal garden which is predominantly evergreen and can withstand the ocean spray and buffeting winds.
In contrast to the exposed west coast landscape on the ocean side, the sheltered back yard and courtyard are living spaces that can be enjoyed year round, and offer more traditional garden spaces. A slatted pergola, water bubbler, courtyard fire bowl and circular seating area create spaces that are both comfortable and functional. Charcoal cobble pavers, set in circular patterns evoke droplets of water throughout the patio space.

UPDATED MAY 2020: The stone slab walls are being installed and the rest of the installation will be managed in stages.
These Ocean Pearl Stone slabs from K2 Stone embody the grey tones in stormy ocean waves, and add bold structure to the garden. Once the garden is planted, native plants will spill over the edges and soften the hard lines of this infrastructure.
