As a complement to a stunning contemporary residence by architect Darrell Epp, a garden painted in a few bold strokes was built. In the frontyard, large angular boulders hold a steep slope back and a limited selection of architectonic plants help frame a low profile façade. In the backyard, double-width hedges of yews and Portuguese laurels are used to define a minimalist canvas of lawns and beds. Two perfectly flat terraces were created by capturing the grade change in a long, skinny staircase made of galvanized aluminum and filled with grass. Finally, as an organic counterpoint to this unequivocal geometry is a sculpture by French artist Marie Khouri, off-centered on the lower lawn terrace.
