Mountaintop Marvel

C Magazine

The homeowners of this mountaintop Santa Monica property called on Mark Tessier Landscape Architecture to punctuate their modernist proclivities while pushing the limits and diversity of native plantings. Using concrete to define structures; a bridge over a substantial koi pond that cordons off the world beyond; a water feature that provides white noise; an outdoor kitchen for their open-air dining room; as well as other vignettes for family gatherings or pool side lounge seating; Mark Tessier Landscape Architecture created rooms that give as much attention to the overall garden as it does to the expansive views of the Santa Monica mountain vistas.
