THEATER GARDEN AND KOI POND
The Theater Garden, more architectural conceit than actual performance venue, was adapted from those Shutze had seen in Italy. It consists of staggered rows of boxwoods in linear patterns. Between the theatre and the home is a sunken garden that features a koi pond and a garden palette of cool deep greens and water lilies. This garden, which pools cooler air, provides natural “air conditioning” for the adjacent screen porch.
