Located in the heart of beautiful Brentwood, this stunning residence was created when multiple plots were combined and two extant buildings were renovated by Frederick Fisher Architects. Landscape architect Pamela Burton then created a large sunken lawn with a stone-and-wood pergola to the south. A long, stone rill filled with irises runs amid the lawn, which is wrapped by a decomposed granite path. The path is bordered by an ever-changing palette of sun and shade-loving shrubs designed in the pattern of the color wheel. White, green, chartreuse, and yellow merge into orange, red, and rose, then transition into burgundy, purple, and blue. The result is a garden room filled with color year-round from the foliage and flowers.

Pamela Burton, FASLA, received her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Architecture from the University of California, Los Angeles. She founded Pamela Burton & Company shortly after graduation, motivated to integrate the disciplines of art, architecture, and landscape. 

In 2003 Princeton Architectural Press published Private Landscapes: Modernist Gardens in Southern California, which Pamela co-authored with Marie Botnick. The book profiles residential gardens designed by mid-century modernists Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, and several of their colleagues. In 2010 Princeton Architectural Press published Pamela Burton Landscapes, which describes the interrelationships among twenty of Burton’s projects, including private residences and public landscapes in California, Hawaii, Idaho, New York, and Brazil.
