JLJA responded to the neighborhood's wooded character with bold, lush plantings that reflected the family's streamlined, modernist tastes. The clients sought a garden in which to immerse themselves in nature and to be together as a family, a goal achieved through strategic placement of plants, furnishings, and focal points such as a dramatic fire pit. The new garden offers generous outdoor spaces for gathering, striking inside/outside views, contrasting textures, and year-round color. In addition to effectively layering foliage, JLJA designed and installed a corten steel sculptural screening element in the front entry to create a porous buffer from neighbors and street. This was so successful that JLJA detailed a dynamic water element, also of corten, that terminates the views from the house into the back garden.
