The James Rose Center

James Rose is a famous landscape architect. This house functions as an example of his best work. It suffered a fire and was nearly destroyed 15 years ago, but Rose rebuilt it, and created a foundation to further his work. The house now has tours ever summer, the first & third Saturdays of the month. The house was built as an example of how to interweave both inner and outer spaces, thus the catwalks from one room to another. When I visited I literally wasn’t sure where the front door was because there were seemingly several buildings. That’s the point. The courtyard: is it exterior? Is it part of the boundary of the house? It’s all interwoven and I hope to take a tour sometime to get more information about it. Take the link above for tour times and more information about the designer.
