TEA HOUSE

 

The client, a landscape designer, wanted this building as part of a garden design project in the Japanese tradition.  Inspired by a photo of an ancient building in Japan, he and I designed this interpretation and built it using traditional joinery of salvaged Longleaf pine, Cypress, and Fir timbers

PERGOLA

 

From the driveway, two paths diverge; one to the house, one to the screened (summer) house.

The client asked for a structure to greet visitors and guide their way. Its design is inspired by the layering of traditional Japanese architecture.

SCREEN HOUSE

 

 Sitting prominently in the hilltop orchard where we'd built a timber framed house, this little building is built of materials meant to age with charm in the salt air and sunshine. Inspired by ancient temples and Japanese joinery.
