Comfort of your own Home

By Melanie | Published: October 19th, 2015

The atmosphere of an area is determined from its surrounding and appearance. We designed this space to amplify the sense of relaxation; a sanctum. Our design creates more opportunities for gatherings and social events. The openness of this space allows of it to adapt to any events hosted by the owner. Even if owner of this home do not wish to host events, it allows them to relax in the comfort of their own home.

The bring out the vibrancy of this space, we carefully fine-tune the details; such as the tiles for the pool, the backdrop of the water wall, or even the smallest detail of the bottom of risers on stairs being carved out.

Water Wise Landscapes

By Melanie | Published: January 14th, 2015

This residence is a perfect example of a xeriscape landscape. Pebbles and mulch paired with drought tolerant succulents reduce the amount of water use on site and provide a low maintenance alternative to residential landscaping. We used an existing cactus as a focal point in the middle of a large gravel bed, anchored by large boulders.
