This rooftop garden was designed in Edo Period Japanese style.

The intricate garden provided an aestethic view from the master bedroom and bath from which the photo to the left was taken. Stone was substituted for water to minimize stress on the structural components of the house.

The garden creates an oasis with views beyond of the mountain scenery. We listened carefully to the client’s desires in creating a soothing, peaceful effect.
