west panorama // Seattle, WA

The structure of the garden dates to 1910 and the home’s architect, Carl Frelinghuysen Gould, was the most prominent Seattle architect of his generation. The project added a pool to the upper garden terrace, which offers a 270 degree view to the west looking at downtown Seattle, Queen Anne Hill, and Lake Union. Simple elements respect the historic fabric of the property and provide a foreground to the panorama. Additional terraces were addressed to make room for soccer and entertaining. The landscape was designed to be elegant, simple, usable, and complement the historic home.
