Seattle, WA

Gate Entry, Perimeter Walls, and Future Visitor Center

  • Client :Kubota Garden Foundation
  • Gate Design:Gerard Tsutakawa

Visitors are met with a bronze entry gate, marking arrival to the garden. The steel shingles are meant to weather, bringing a rich earthen color to the lines of the roof.


A future visitor center is planned to support four primary functions: provide a residence for a garden caretaker, to house indoor wedding receptions and community/conference meeting space, to provide restroom facilities, and provide administrative office, retail, and concession space for the Kubota Garden Foundation.
