Entries set the tone for the entire project – both the architecture and the landscape. They can be extravagant or cozy, but in either case they are the prelude to the houses’ interior. Creating a clear arrival sequence through the landscape enhanced by garden elements, lighting, and water features encourages one to move towards the main entrance of the home.
Whether it is a motor court with a commanding California Oak tree as a centerpiece, or a pedestrian gate that reveals hidden rocky pathways, or an allee of columnar palm trees leading towards the entry – these spaces are all welcoming experiences. The entry is a place to pause and to review one’s surroundings.
