Mitate House--a collaboration with Bennett Custom Homes: the Tisane

The design juxtaposes a boxy 2 story element with several low slung volumes split with a slot garden at the core of the house.  The house has a massive wall running the length of the house that becomes fireplace and storage, but is broken to create a two story atrium adjacent to the garden.


The house has a series of gardens beyond the 'tsuboniwa' (pocket garden)--a private courtyard adjacent to the guest suite, a salad garden for growing vegetables off the kitchen, a broad outdoor patio wrapped in planting, and a roof garden off the master bedroom.
