Kurisu's own specialized team worked with local crews onsite to create a complete Japanese-style outdoor living environment including waterfalls, pathways, zen-style rock gardens, private courtyard gardens and entry features. Rather than use exotic palms and other impressive plant specimens typical of the area’s resort landscapes, Kurisu selected native and tropical plants to imbue a quieter, more humble sense of nature. In this challenging project, Kurisu's design intent was to create a garden seamlessly integrating the architecture and varied living spaces with the surrounding native vegetation and highlight the natural elements of light, sound and the Caribbean Sea.
