Located on a steep, remote site near Beirut, this garden space has been transformed into a peaceful sanctuary, offering a retreat from the chaos of city life.

Located in the Pacific Heights district of San Francisco, this urban residential garden takes full advantage of a small space with three discretely landscaped sections, each enclosed and rigorously defined by both architectural and planted edges.
