This project was created for an active family of five in collaboration with Belzberg Architects. Located on nearly three acres in suburban Los Angeles, this property has a wild quality to it that we emphasized with native California plantings arranged informally. There are several walkways that meander through the property to connect the new meadows, vegetable gardens, orchards, and play areas for the children. We wanted the experience of walking through nature rather than merely observing it. Dozens of new California Sycamores and Coast Live Oaks sweep across the site to visually connect the expanse of the property. The materials include locally quarried decomposed granite, gravel and a unique concrete mix with hand-seeded aggregate that resembles old country roads. Small reflecting basins, garden walls and steps are made of CorTen steel. The project is finishing completion and was created while at Pamela Burton and Company as Director of Design.
