About the Project:

This 13-acre secluded country property, located in New York’s Hudson Valley, is surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected land. Mismanagement of the site over the years required a holistic approach to this reimagined landscape.

Peeling away previous unsuccessful gestures, the new design reestablished meadow and woodland habitats and turned an ineffective drainage pattern into a site amenity. A system of walking trails and boardwalks through the meadow and surrounding tree line provides opportunities to engage with the restored landscape and offers views to the Taconic Mountains.
