location: San Francisco, CA | description: the upper terrace presents a modern landscape inspired by the existing architecture and the regional landscape alike. the graceful forms of mature olive trees and clean lines of travertine paving are complemented by new sculptural elements. faceted forms, inspired by mosaics found on the property and the angled lines of the stone walkway, become a common theme. seasonal vegetable plantings add a distinct graphic element and unexpected utility. a ring of charred wood elements conjures memories of fire-scarred tree trunks in the ancient forests across the bay.
