The Cultural Landscape Foundation Garden Dialogues 2022
May 14, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
Los Altos Hills, CA 94022
Slot House, Los Altos Hills, CA – 10:00 to 11:30 AM
Sited in the midst of an oak woodland in the Los Altos Hills, the striking, modernist Slot House called for a decisive but restrained approach to its landscape plan, with colors and textures that stand up to the home’s bold forms yet soften its angularity. A minimal palette of warm tones on the house and paving, pops of red in plants and an architectural fountain, and a living roof with succulent garden add interest and invite exploration while deftly integrating the home into its hillside site.
Nestled In, Los Altos Hills, CA – 2:00 to 3:30 PM
Nestled into a one-acre site, this existing shingled house was in need of an update to suit a modern family. The original tennis court and small pool cut the house off from the wooded hillside covered in redwoods and oaks, separating the house from the landscape. The clients desired to make the house more livable and to create new outdoor living spaces, realized by anew pool, outdoor entertainment area with pizza oven, BBQ grill & fire pit, a separate building for an art studio, orchard and small kitchen garden, and plenty of space for the kids to explore.
