Seattle Landscape Architect Brooks Kolb’s Mercer Island Garden Featured in Issue #22 of “Gray” Magazine

Designed by SHKS Architects, the Yoga Studio at Brooks Kolb’s Mercer Island Garden was featured in “Gray” Magazine. Here’s a link: http://issuu.com/graymag/docs/gray_n0._22_jj15/93?e=3579295/13295684

Brooks designed a garden of native and ornamental ferns around the Yoga Studio, with nurse logs on the forest floor. The building appears to float above the ground. Here’s a photograph of the landscape as viewed from the studio, taken by Ben Benschneider of the Seattle Times, which originally appeared in “Pacific NW” Magazine.

The metal sculpture in the background is by celebrated Portland artist Lee Kelly.
