Interloop was commissioned to design a landscape strategy for a residence in Houston, Texas. The project plan is generated through a sequence of pentagram shapes that link diagonally across the lawn. Each pentagram is materially detailed to accommodate social and recreational activities. Stone paving defines an outdoor dining area, hard wood planks form a wood deck, and gravel beds accommodate specimen plants. Central to the design is a three-armed asterisk pool made up of three pentagrams that are differentiated in depth and access. This project marks phase two of the landscape design for the 9° House, a highly acclaimed private residence designed by Interloop-Architecture. Design Team: Dawn Finley, Mark Wamble, Erin Ruhl
