Tables of Water

Bellevue, Washington
Charles Anderson Landscape Architecture

Seeking to engage a relationship between landscape, art and


architecture, the design of this 3.5-arce residence extends the
walls of the house outside, creating rooms, framing views and
making space for sculpture. The site features linear elements
such as terraces overlooking Lake Washington, two intimate
gardens, and a series of Tables of Water. Tables of water are
carried through the site, at first only seen and finally touchable.
Two less formal gardens break down the geometry established by
the evergreen hedges and bosques. The Garden of the Wilds is
filled with palms and tropical plants. Night blooming plants and
perennials are in the Garden of Respite, offering a quiet place to
wander, especially in the evening. * With architects Olson Kundig,
