Shades of Green

Situated on the Sea of Cortez, this home's garden features a sculptural ramp that ups the ante on accessibility.

Large doors open to curving terraces covered in palapa, or palm fronds, tied down with fish netting. Flanked by spiky agave and sculptural railings, the ramp becomes a stroll in the garden.

Transparent hurricane fabric protects the house's glass openings and solar panels.

A concrete wheelchair-accessible ramp leads to the main living spaces on the second floor.

Shadows cast by the ironwork's seashell and wave motifs animate the ground plane.

Color cues came from the desert landscape and the luminous Sea of Cortez.
