The design decisions for this project were all guided by context. The site, the big sky and the heroic house do all the talking, and the garden provides a place for this spectacle. Like a lot of simple compositions, it takes an immense amount of consideration to get the layout of the elements just right.
We elected to have a very restrained approach – this project involved real landscaping rather than garden making. It was an exercise in landforming and contouring the ground to offer amenity and settle the residence into the site.
