Ribbons of Steel, Nova Scotia

Inspired by wonderful painters including Lawren Harris, Arkhip Kuindzhi and Tom Thomson, a woodsy birch grove was proposed for this from garden. To address a sloping grade towards the house, a series of terraces formed by steel ‘ribbons’ act as retaining walls and create year round contrast to the white birch trunks.
