Pasadena Residence


As the landscape architect of a property in Pasadena, CA, Karelaine was asked to reimagine the gardens surrounding this beautiful mid-century modern home.

The goal of the project was to redesign the existing landscape to create better flow, provide more texture, and create an overall visual consistency that complements the unique architectural features of this mid-century modern home. The design aims to maximize this style by blending the interior with the exterior with multiple outdoor living areas. The concept features a cohesive, eco-friendly, and low-maintenance garden that is water and energy efficient.


Conceptual Design.

The conceptual design was first organized by garden zones around the property. The composition features specific plants, inspirational images, and design notes based on the client's goals and the vision for the project. The conceptual design was created utilizing multiple programs. First, the site plan was drafted in Rhino. Then, the Adobe Suite was used to create the presentation for the client, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
