pound ridge, New York
This woodland residence had lost qualities of softness and serenity due to expansive paving. The design intervention focused on two goals: to restore a sense of oasis through planting, and to introduce an abbreviated hardscape that honors sculptural detail.
UPPER EAST SIDE TOWNHOUSE, NEW YORK CITY
This urban brownstone courtyard was too shady and lacked necessary air flow to support a traditional planted garden. The design intervention introduced a custom-designed trompe l'oiel backdrop and themes borrowed from theatrical set design. The result is intended as a setting animated by the sound of water, dappled texture and light, and seasonal rotation of plantings. Featured metalwork was a collaboration with Dean Anderson of Supersquare, Inc..
fishers island, new york
This summertime residence sits on top of a steep hill overlooking Long Island Sound. The existing site featured an abrupt driveway approach and a sense of disjuncture between architecture and landscape configuration. The design intervention aimed at melding the house with its setting into a coherent and inviting composition.
