Highlands Residence // Seattle, WA
This formal garden is on a high bluff with sweeping views of Puget Sound. The garden is extensively terraced to provide ample outdoor living space. A water feature links the three terraces as the water flows from one level to the next. The garden is Italianate in concept with alcoves and rills that move the water through the various garden rooms. The main outdoor living space, designed by Stuart Silk Architects, includes a fireplace and kitchen, which open graciously onto the highest terrace.
