Terremoto


Front Garden

Design Inspiration
A typology originally hailing from Morocco, the riad is traditionally a home built around an interior garden. Terremoto proposes Riad-i-Cal, the California Riad. The garden and entry patio are perfect for receiving and entertaining guests – with Moroccan mint tea or California wine.

Highlights
Blue-green California native plant palette with a formal overlay of Palms.

The dry fountain relic is a typology of Morocco that we have interpreted through a California lens.

The upper terrace prioritizes both viewing of the geometric garden below and the Golden Gate Bridge beyond. Simple furnishing and eclectic pots offer an informal space for lounging and entertaining.

Rear Garden

Design Inspiration
We were inspired by the existing structure of the garden and decided to insert differing scales of materials to break down the formality of the ground plane into zones of living for a growing family.
