Masterfully integrated with the woodland environment, Scott Lewis Landscape Architecture creates a landscape featuring regional plantings surrounding a complex of homes and studios.

The architecture designed by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop, introduces a pair of gabled pavilions connected by a flat segment topped with a green roof which interconnects a series of structures that harmonizes with natural and maximizes scenic vistas.

Centrally located between the two gabled structures, is a collection of diverse selection of plants, creating a rich tapestry of textures and colors.

The presence of cacti, succulents, and other flowering perennials are maintained within a sculptural, rough-hewn stone retaining wall located in the central courtyard.

Ranging in different forms, the plants create a visual form with winding gravel pathways that invites exploration and gives structure to the space.

The design caters to the unique needs of its clients—artists and craftspeople—who desire specific areas for their diverse hobbies.

The clients’ specifications included separate studios tailored for weaving and electronics construction, such as computers, speakers, and prototypes, alongside a woodworking shop.

One client, an expert gardener, envisioned an open, unfenced native garden featuring a dedicated area for succulents, providing a dynamic canvas for her horticultural experiments. Additionally, they needed ample space to exhibit their art collection.

Above the studios, a rooftop garden filled with meadow grasses and wildflowers mirrors the indigenous essence of the nearby regional open space reserve.

The native meadow grasses and wildflowers reduce the need for irrigation, while rain chain are used as a decorative alternative to a traditional downspout, integrating sustainable water practices within the project.
