As this home was built on an impossibly steep grade, the structure appears to float above the landscape. The reflective quality of the architecture, glass and steel cladding, make the garden appear as if it is twice as large. We used ornamental grasses and exotic palms to tie the home to the landscape. Using tall, fast-growing American Sweet Gums for height and a lovely multi-trunk Strawberry Tree to reflect on the solar-controlled glass windows.
