Circular parking court for easy access. Use of decorative gravel and cobblestone bands.
Walking on Water
Native fieldstone slabs in pool structure provide access between sun and entertainment terraces.
Infinity Edge Pool
Crossing state line with water flowing from New York to Connecticut. Careful attention was paid to the design and layout of all site amenities; pool, entertainment terraces, sitting gardens and their orientation to the pond and garden pavilion.
A Green Transformation
The replacement of a deteriorating roof with a sustainable green roof alternative, reclaimed stone patio and sitting wall.
A distant view of the pond and pavilion. Reclaimed stone slab stairs provide a newly created access through the restored woodland edge, along the wetland buffer and down to the pond.
Spiraling waves of alpine plantings with flowering accents divided by recycled colored glass, quartz & jade stones.
The close proximity of the garden pavilion to the pond called for a creative method of responsible storm water management; a mix of sedum and flowering perennials, accented by bands of recycled glass and stones.
Private Sitting Area
Understated stucco steps wrap and encase the existing chimney, restoring a nonfunctioning fireplace and providing access for a unique viewing opportunity.
Accessing the Green Roof
Stucco steps up to green roof.
The Textural Palette
Contrasting textures in stone and stucco take advantage of reclaimed fieldstone from the existing woodland and weathered bluestone from the main residence renovation.
View Across the Pond
Pastoral pond view. A forgotten resource, long neglected is now protected and enjoyed.
Evening Entertainment Area
Infinity edge pool and spa straddle the state line. Boulders from the pool excavation were used as pool accent pieces and hillside stabilization.
Grey Goose Pond
Rescuing this 1945 Modernist Garden Pavilion from demolition, our clients embraced a landscape approach to restoration; replacing a deteriorating roof, with a sustainable alternative. Views interrupted by an aging icon, now beckon to explore this livable jewel of landscape art; completing the final phase of site development, where respect for nature and history prevailed. Additional site structures and amenities were integrated using environmental storm water controls, woodland restoration, wetland buffers and hillside stabilization measures.
