A small, classic Mediterranean house on a deep lot running down to a canyon and urban creek. A hedge and steel gates with an abstracted reed pattern enclose the driveway and front gravel garden planted with islands of succulents, grasses, and rush. The lap pool plays with perspective as it curves and narrows toward the creek edge, visually lengthening the yard area. The concrete pool edge makes a seat wall edge along the sloping lawn.
