Entries in garden (69)
That's what the print says and that may be true ... or not :) What I am noticing though is the demise of the overstuffed, the over thought, the over tweaked, the overdone. I love this Eagle Rock, California house Bestor Architecture. Stylish but casual, family friendly and just right for everyday living. And who could say no to a half pipe in the backyard?
Can you buy a house just because of a kitchen and its garden courtyard outlook? I think you can. The rest of the house is nice (I'm sure it looks fab in real life) but it's the breakfast window seating and that wall of plants clinging to the Sydney sandstone outcrop that has me in a twirl. I'm stalking in surprisingly leafy Paddington on a very busy road but from these photos you'd never know. Link here while it lasts.
Mystical, magical, green. A house for its human occupants and a house for the trees. More importantly a house that gives to the city as well. The design for the award winning House for Trees in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam aims to address the overwhelming lack of vegetation in this urban centre as well as providing a connection to nature and a means to alleviate flash flooding from storm water run off.
