Sea Bluff Vista

Sea Bluff Vista | Shell Beach, CA

This mid-century modern residence sits ocean bluff-side, where the physical embodiment of crisp, salty air finds its way into the landscape. A landscape treatment of low-maintenance succulents, grasses, paths, and ground covers is placed deliberately to ease the transition between a modern interior and a coastal exterior. It also features a beautiful olive tree, and plants designed to silhouette against the garden walls.

Winner of the CLCA Beautification Award for Small Residential Landscape in 2011, this fascinating landscape makes the most of a tight situation.

Coastal Contemporary | Cayucos, CA

This custom residential home is designed in a contemporary style by Jade Architecture, set in a beautiful mixed evergreen forest along the northern central coast. The home was built off-grid by Semmes and Co. Builders and features rammed earth.

Madrone’s award-winning landscape design seamlessly bridges the substantial transition between the unique contemporary architecture to the surrounding mixed evergreen forest, maximizing usable outdoor space and minimizing maintenance and all energy inputs.

The project was sited in an area where minimal tree removal or mitigation was necessary. Madrone’s design used native drought-tolerant plants in a modern styling. The simple, low-maintenance plant palette utilizes foliage color and texture to create a dramatic effect alongside the modern home.

Outdoor living spaces were maximized through a custom water wall, stepping stones and pavers, and a lawn area created from a native turf substitute.
