This contemporary, low-impact, home and garden with seamless transitions between indoors and out is the love child of a beautiful collaboration between architect and landscape architect. Utilizing recurring natural cycles as primary design criteria, the unified design is a self-sustaining system that sits lightly on its narrow site in a well-established neighborhood.
Multiple levels of vegetated green roofs support edible gardens, solar panels, potted herbs, and ornamental cut flower beds.  Porous paving, a large cistern for rainwater capture, lushly planted rain gardens, and gravity-supported irrigation relieve the site of an abundance of naturally occurring drainage, using it to support the gardens and allowing it to slowly seep back into the ground.
