Located in Struckhon a German town near the Swiss/ German border the landscape design was to echo both the Swiss rural landscape sensibility, as well as the simple orderly sustainable landscape tradition typical in modern day Germany. The modern residence which the garden surrounds dictated a context for order and symmetry in the garden, The large landscape area around the house was divided into a series of functional modern outdoor rooms that flowed naturally into each other but gave human scale and a sense of intimacy to the spaces. Circle and square areas provided for a strong yet simple sense of geometry that worked with and complimented the simple geometry of the house. The linear lines of the house were reflected in the areas of simple square linear design including the pool and sunken garden, while circular areas added a dynamic element to the design. Masses of lush and colourful planting brought the geometry of the landscape areas to life providing a natural lushness.
