Landscapes

actual site entry

This is my most recent residential project in Medina, WA.  The mid-century house is being completely revamped into a beautifully modernized, contemporary look.

My job is to give the landscape a little face-lift, if you will, to match the look and feel of the new facade.  The existing site has some very mature rhododendrons and is shaded by a few old cedars.  We’re working on 5 zones of landscaping here: the front entry/driveway, the front door entry, the back yard, and two private courtyards on the west side of the house (on the right hand side of the picture above).

This is a quick idea sketch for the front entry.  My client would like to add a gated entrance into the site and requested more “curb appeal” to set up the entry to the house.  The plan is to utilize the existing walls, paint them, then add additional height with the rainscreen to match the siding of the house.

More to come…
