Wellington Village Serenity

A covered verandah, a garage studio, and a cedar bridge work in harmony to extend the interior living areas of this modern home out into the back yard. A rock garden nestles in the H-shaped plan of the house, and the composed landscape crosses under a bridge and breaks into stepping stones to help define the soft transitions necessary for this tranquil setting.

Orchestrated paths articulate the different destinations: the living area and music room in the house, and the garage studio/ping pong arena. Light moves across the space from late morning to dusk and dapples through the trees, highlighting Japanese grasses and softening the division between interior and exterior serenity.
