Arbutus Residence

New Architecture by Garret Cord Werner currently under development and in for permit. This home's architecture is strongly integrated into the landscape. You can see that the lines from the home's vertical elements extend into the garden and also stop and start the walls that become part of the fence and entry. Reflecting ponds are a feature of the entry that feels like a bridge over water that leads one the front door and a private inner courtyard sanctuary with outdoor fireplace. The home appears and to be in separate pavilions but it is actually connected by lower walk ways. This breaks down the home into a much more pleasing scale and allows the home to blend into the neighborhood in a non-imposing manner while still maintaining a strong presence of style and sophistication.
