The Applegate project carried the Asian/industrial theme of a new home built by Brian Burns and Tom Gandy into the surrounding landscape of white oak and ponderosa.  The sight is south facing with a view of the Applegate River and the front edge of the Siskiyou Mountains.  Steel, stone, and rough sawn incense cedar reinforced the concept in a series of walls and patio spaces.  Native and non-native species punctuate the plantings near the home and fade into the natural setting.  The work was a highlight of The Land Collective and showcases Sean Scully’s excellent stone masonry.
