The idea of the project is to create microambients that enable different activities of hosts and their guests. Although, each area creates its own specific atmosphere, all together make the unbreakable unity of beautiful Californian house garden.
In addition, attention was paid to create a peacefully atmosphere which allows privacy to homeowners. Related to this, rows of trees are formed, plants that affect bees and butterflies are instaled. Further more, water surfaces that create the magical sounds of water are designed, the tactile surface which, when you are walking on, create the specific feeling that you are in a real small oasis. In this way, not only the sense of sight is satisfied, but also the sense of hearing and touching. In fact, the goal of the project is to offer peace, relaxation and fun as well.
The view from the street is very important in this project . Fence is designed to preserve the security and privacy of household, as well as to keep the dogs in the garden, but there are certain gaps, through which garden can be partially seen from the street, in order to awake curiosity to passer-by, who immediately wants to see what is actually hiding in the garden. Fence design is a combination of minimalistic and rustic, which perfectly fits the context of this house.
At the entrance, the sound of water is the best possible “welcome note “ for the guests. The entrance of the house is clearly visible from the gate. The tiling, which leads around the house is made of stone and offers a unique feeling while you are walking- that you are in a real natural park. The size of lawn is reduced, but we paid attention to keep a zone where the home owner can play with his dogs, and they can freely run around the house. To the west, in the quietest corner of the yard, there is a covered seating area, from which is falling a romantic vine. This space is protected from wind and noise with three barricades: stone fence, tall trees, and the pergolla with plants on it. In this way, this space becomes an oasis for relaxation from the city bustle. The Mediterranean style of design is reflected particularly in the yard behind, where is a luxury pool designed, space for sitting and dining, grilling and having fun. Of course , instead of the pool, in this area can simply be the lawn, if that is more appropriate for the client.
This area has taken an important place in project, because it is viewed from the living and dining rooms.
All texture that are used in project, are from natural materials> wood, various types of stone paving, grass, and they provide unique feeling= that this landscape architecture “grows” from nature. In fact, this architecture is the way to improve natural yard and to make it more functional.
In the end, all of these principles that were used in designing the garden, have made it become an integral part of the house. After all, garden becomes beautiful extended room where everyone will wish to stay.
