- Landscape Architects
The design of the garden is based on the architectural interaction between the house and the various garden levels as they relate to each other. This is achieved by a glass and wooden bridge, which subtly links the living area with the garden, and by amelanchier canopies planted in the lower garden level which extend above the living area. A gravel path winds through a field of tulips to the tea and spice gardens. Grass cushions, planted in the shape of a wave, reproduce the movement of the water and are framed by a dense bamboo hedge. Slim ash trees create a transparent edge at the shore without obstructing the view of the lake.
