Garden Design Travels


2 Bar House -The Jorgensen’s Menlo Park home in California, USA

The naturally day-lit, 2,400 square-foot house is divided into two perpendicular sections, hence the project’s name, the “2 Bar House.”

Though the “invisible” green design elements carry the lion’s share of the measurable environmental benefits, the most stunning attribute is the living roof designed by Lauren Schneider of Wonderland Garden and planted with succulents, aloe, viviums, and ice plants that flower in swaths of white and purple.

Two of the must-haves for the Jorgensens were a seamless connection between indoors and out since they frequently dine and play outside, and large expanses of glass to allow natural light to illuminate the interior. The living room opens into the backyard a spacious deck
