BALCONES RESIDENCE

The landscape is conceived as a clearing in the woods, complementing the clean lines of the cantilevered modern home while adding color, shadow and movement to the site. Retaining walls and precise grading maneuvers provide the overall structure for the landscape; while rainwater collection and related water features help define intimate courtyard spaces. Water sensitivity is extended throughout with drought tolerant plant species uniting the wooded and open landscape typologies.
