Rain Garden Collaborating with Sherwood Design Engineers, site drainage was integrated early into the architecture and landscape design. Seasonal rains are managed onsite through multiple rain gardens which collect and control storm water runoff from the roof, decks, and pool terrace. This system decreases on site erosion and possible flooding to the city’s drainage downstream from the project site.
Site Analysis: Visualizing a Site Analysis Ever wonder how the environment and natural surroundings will affect the design of a home? Here is a sample of a typical site analysis we think through in the design process, and sometimes illustrate for the client. The interplay of the building mass and natural features, such as trees, sun path, wind patterns, and the form of the land are important items to consider and can help ensure that the site is utilized to maximum advantage.
