The Werner Residence sits atop a cliff with beautiful views over the city of Fort Worth. The perimeter of the property is bordered by mature stands of cedar elms providing a strong, natural-setting sense of scale and views to the city through the trees. The layout of the house is accented with axial views from the interior to the exterior into the courtyards and garden spaces.
The gardens are divided into public and private zones; the courtyards and private areas are situated off the bathroom and the bedrooms. The paving materials throughout the interior of the house flow into the gardens, extending the rooms and making a seamless transition to the outside. Sight lines throughout the garden are terminated with fountains, art, and water walls.
