Contemporary Style - Wood Deck
The balanced spacing of the cedar bollard, the azalea in the foreground, and the specimen maple and low cedar wall in the background, creates and defines an intimate entrance court in a woodland setting. The space is subtly defined as noted, yet offers a quiet feeling of openness to the surrounding forest. The “voids” between the “objects” within a space are integral to the overall design and give “sculptural” form to the plants & bollard. Qualities of a meditation garden, a Zen garden, minimalist design, and Japanese style are present, with a touch of modern. This courtyard is an example of exterior space design on an intimate level. Contrast this style of design and scale with “The Belvedere” and “The Big Space” projects.
