Plant of the Day
Saturday 18 October 2014

In a quiet corner of the impressive Japanese Garden of Chicago Botanic Garden the autumn colour of Lespedeza bicolor (shrubby bushclover) is creating the boundary to this beautiful stone path. In summer this plant species has small pink pea-like flowers. Here simplicity of plant choice is the key to success.

Nestled on a knoll top within an expansive West Marin ranch, this compound creates a gathering place for an extended family. The cluster of buildings shapes a courtyard that frames a view back to Mount Tamalpais. The courtyard shields the strong winds and creates a warm sunny spot for the plunge pool and hot tub.The house is designed to be net zero with a remote photovoltaic array providing power.

Micro Cluster Cabins Reiulf Ramstad Architects “The client…: Micro Cluster Cabins Reiulf Ramstad Architects
"The client wanted a cabin for the whole family, but at the same time it needed to be divisible in some way. The solution was a cluster of three structures, which can be used individually. Each of the buildings is defined as a clarified geometric volume, organized around the outdoor area that binds them together as one unit.
Toward the northeast, a hill borders and defines the site, together with the view in the opposite direction. The spatial interaction between landscape and the structure creates a beneficial microclimate. This is reflected by the structures’ southwest orientation, where the gable end is glazed. In the other directions the buildings appear more closed.”
