Reid Residence

The clean and elegant style of this home is reflected in the landscape through the application of simple geometry in pools, terraces, walls, and planting beds. A beautiful red wall mirrors the use of bright primary colors within the house and draws the eye out into the landscape. At the base of the wall, water cascading from a stainless steel pipe adds sound and movement to the garden. In contrast, a still, deep blue reflecting pool occupies the center of the garden. Collectively, the red wall, the deep blue of the pool, and many soft layers of green landscape create a carefully arranged composition, while providing cool and pure spaces to occupy and enjoy.
