The concept for this project was to provide a landscape experience that would be seen as a compliment though utter contrast to the sharp lines of this country house. The studied massing of white stucco architecture was imagined to sit firmly in a planted park of isolated tree trunks and clusters of summer shrubs that celebrate the unadorned irregularities of nature. Void of any paved surfaces or even a driveway, the selected plantings for this new landscape find inspiration from those that existed naturally or were found within view. Influenced by the pastoral idyll of Arcadia, the achieved effect is a landscape with redundancy of forms that allows for a greater contemplation with the happenings of the natural world. The unadorned north fašade is contrasted at the south with a bounty of fragrant rambling roses that cover the entire elevation. Hidden from view is a small circular pool enclosed in a ring of boxwood that is further framed in a cascade of privet and locust foliage.
