The Garden Bible, the newest work from Images Publishing features great work from world’s well known architects including Winn Wittman. Written by Barbara Ballinger and Michael Gassman, the book is a richly illustrated, comprehensive guide on how to create a perfect outdoor space as a homeowner. It offers information on top regional garden trends from around the United States. Alongside, it clearly demonstrates various challenges involved with outdoor spaces and how to overcome these to transform the site. Teaching home owners to develop a master plan, the writers have come up with some of the most budget-friendly suggestions and ideas for homeowners.
Out of 20 case studies that the book focuses on, Winn Wittman’s luxury Acquavilla home garden is also featured. The renovated Aquavilla residence is located on Lake Travis, near Austin in Texas and displays opulent architecture rising from the ashes of 80’s house. Designed by Winn Wittman Architecture in collaboration with Jeremy Broussard and builder Gary Robinson, the exquisite villa displays luxurious interior design that contrasts with the surrounding beauty. The garden of this exquisite villa was designed in collaboration with Landscape Architect Andrew McConnico. To create a very unique effect, colored crushed glass mounds were combined with local plants and succulents. This landscaping induces the ideas of fairytale lifestyle.
In United States, transforming the home’s outdoor space is the latest trend. During the two years renovation, architect Wittman added playful colors, unifying the element and made it a lively and contemporary heaven. And, the pool strives to bring the lake up to the home. Awnings, window films and custom panels are also used to keep the luxury home well-protected from harsh sunlight.
