Located in San Francisco, this project 'Parkside Garden' by Scott Lewis Landscape Architecture involved the creation of an urban garden in conjunction with the extensive renovation of a shingle-style single-family residence. The site is adjacent to the heavily forested Presidio park. But the real focal point of the project is the former-storage-shed-turned-ivy-covered art studio, which is surrounded by metal framework. Well, we really need to look no further, they had us at the "green cube'.
This project proves that contemporary forms can join lush plantings to create an inviting environment. Bordering a wooded city park, this garden blends modern angles and green and white flora. A wedge-shaped terrace visually widens the site and extends the home's living area out toward the park. The property's art studio became a green cube focal point. The aesthetic of the home's modern interior is reflected in the distinctive lines of this refreshing garden.
