When inspiration hits you go with it. I met a client over a year ago on her site and when I saw her house being framed up I stepped out into the back yard and experienced a vision of inspiration and I was fortunate that the client came a long for the experience. Designs come from inspirations of the site of the Architecture and from my clients.  Above is an example of that vision.  A Japanese Landscape method “a borrowed landscape” abstracted.  Letting the deck and raised planters echo the farm fields bellow was the vision of inspiration for this pacific rim landscape.
