Dresner Residence – Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture

Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture has been featured here on Plastolux many times but I haven’t seen the Dresner Residence before. I would really like to see the inside but the outside is quite a work of art. The large sculpture made from steel beams is amazing and it almost serves as a privacy fence as well. The scale of the art pieces in the courtyard or huge which make them that much more interesting to study.

Modern landscaping by Vertus

Vertus has a fantastic portfolio full of great modern landscaping. Vertus does a really nice job at keeping things simple and not over complicated or busy. I love the atrium with the Dr Seuss looking mounds of grass even if it isn’t real grass. There are some nice uses of steel and concrete in these landscapes. One nice element that I might have to try is the small pieces of gray slate. I really want Mexican pebbles for my yard but they are way too expensive because they are not native to my area.

Modern landscape architecture by Filip Van Damme

Filip Van Damme’s landscape architecture is executed with precision and beauty. The style, formal and geometric while utilizing plants, steel, wood and rock for texture. Spring is definitely knocking on the door and I have quite a few things to do in my yard. Many of the same styles and design elements represented in Filip’s work are similar to what I want to do at my own abode. If you need to get some work done in your yard this year, hopefully this will give you some inspiration.

Landscape Architecture by Working Nature

The cycle of seasons usually brings out the complainers, “tired of the cold or heat”.The Landscape Architecture by Working Nature makes me think that I am already tired of winter, I need warmer weather. Working Nature has a very nice portfolio of modern landscaping. My favorite of their projects is the downtown loft view garden (pictures 2 and 3). Giving restraints to a living organism may not always be good but I absolutely love the tiered grass steps mixed with the geometric concrete rectangles. I don’t know if I would like large sections of gravel but maybe that is just water conservation.

Japanese Inspired Gardens

The name of the company pretty much says it all. Japanese Inspired Gardens is a German company that artistically creates these amazing Japanese modern masterpieces. I have always been attracted to this type of landscaping. It is so exact and precise but it also has elements of nature’s free flowing growth. I could only image what it would take to properly maintain landscapes like these. I am fairly certain that my children would have it dismantled in a day or two. I can picture in my mind one of these gardens in the back yard of a mid century modern house or even a contemporary house for that matter and feel right at home.

Concrete bonsai garden by Arko

When I first saw these images of this bonsai garden I thought they were renderings but as I read on I was in awe. Arko started out as concrete specialists but has now flourished into Exterior architects and rightly so. I once tried the bonsai thing but I wasn’t very good at it. This display is a modernest dream. These concrete forms in all of their architecture and finishes create a perfect minimalist “city scape” for these second generation bonsais to stand as the art work they truly are. My favorite is the double tree with a small body of water around it and ya live fish. I really appreciated the design of their website as well.
