Overview

The clients presented Terrigenous with a challenge - planning a landscape around a new house just feet from an existing house.  The project involved multiple contractors and took roughly a year from start to finish.

Design Scope

The final construction included dry-laid stonework, inspired by knitting patterns, that binds the residence with the surrounding alpaca farm, the source of knitting wool.

A dry laid retaining “wave wall” mimics the movement of water and creates the space for the pool. Inspired by nearby woodwork, a "Harlequin" wall takes on a playfulness and complementary geometry. A retaining wall comes to life with the addition of a recess allowing for firewood storage. Spigots built into the walls are a welcome surprise for gardeners on the farm.
