Three curved steel walls control views out from the garden.  Acting simultaneously as barrier, feature, and frame, they are a defining feature of this landscape. While set apart from the larger landscape their form and color, together with the Japanese maples, perfectly juxtapose the foreground with the background.

On the other side of the home a very different, walled garden unfolds.  The walls and plantings here contain our view, but within this space a microcosm of the outer landscape exists: mountain, river, and sea play out here in abstracted forms.  The elements here, led by the flow of water, draw the eye (and the ear) further into the space, offering a transcendental journey as well as a sensory one.
