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'.
[box]Project Statement :
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.[/box]
