Long Ago Design (2)

While looking for a drawing to do a comparative analysis I found this interesting conceptual design.

What I have is something very loose and “natural” on the right as opposed to something very geometric in design on the left.

The Drawing

Natural on the right, geometric on the left.
Natural on the right, geometric on the left.

The idea was giving the client a chance to look at completely opposite ideas and then decide from there.

What happened was the immediately went to the ‘natural’ look, even though they had indicated to me they were looking for some extra surface for seating.

In the end the only real difference from the drawing on the right and the installation was the water feature aspect. The large pond idea became part of the project.

I thought I’d throw this out there because this is a good example of curvilinear(natural) vs. geometric design in the residential setting.
