It was an empty site at the end of a beautiful street in Kensington, where people used to come to gaze at one of the more spectacular views in the East Bay.  It now has an inspired, low slung and wonderful modern home on it, designed by Gary Parsons, built by Paul Cerami - view for the rest of us still intact, too.  The concrete walls and planters define the spaces in the garden, becoming part of the architecture of the house.  The clients wanted separate rooms within this enclosed front garden, yet affording site lines, near and far - leaning more towards the exuberance of color and plantings than the rigidity of the current modernist approach to rows of plantings.
