Kubota Garden Entry Gate and Crew Quarters

Seattle, WA


Hidden in South Seattle, Kubota Garden models Japanese garden design merged with native northwest plantings.

Gate Entry, Perimeter Walls, and Crew Quarters

  • 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.


Kubota Garden has evolved over time, expanding and transitioning into a public garden. The Crew Quarters project positions a pair of structures around a courtyard for Seattle Parks and Recreation gardeners.


The courtyard contains areas for plant storage and serves as the stage for the annual plant sale. The primary building serves as a meeting room and offices for the garden staff.
