Falling Gardens

One house with multiple roofs cascade down the hillside forming terraces of naturalize meadow rooftop gardens.

From the interiors of the house views across the planted rooftops create a vanishing edge that sweep out and over to the distant hills across the valley.

The owners had always envisioned their house blending into the landscape, having an expression of extending from the hill not upon it.
