Rumble Residence, Palo Alto

Palo Alto

Palo Alto, California

A darkened stainless steel foundation and bluestone terrace forms the center of this small and enclosed urban courtyard. The water feature consists of a flaring and arching tower that spills water into a basin. The basin is divided by a trough to generate two bodies of water. A shallow one with a still, reflecting water surface and an inner area that is rippled and lively. Their contrasting water surfaces creates a magnetic visual interplay. Bright green bamboo, ferns and grasses surround the fountain, adding a colorful vibrancy.
