Quercus agrifolia Deck
Residential re-design in Echo Park. Design research includes using slabbed Coast Live Oak Quercus agrifolia a rarely employed wood due to its protected status (this wood was harvested from a fallen urban tree) and its tortured growth habit that provides fractal edges as well an irrepressible tendency to "move". Other elements include a "grown" arbor structure and recycled material gabion steps and stormwater drainage system.
