Junto Farm, Millbrook, NY. 2005-Present
Master plan and landscape design for a 150 acre private residence. A modern house of mahogany and glass on a grass plinth overlooking the Taconic mountain range. The landscape approach required extensive intervention to heal acres of land with poor soils disturbed during the construction process. The plan strategy was to unify the unique language of the architecture with the inherent qualities of the land. Elements of the plan include belvedere with council ring, pool, tennis court, hedge maze, several orchards, trout pond, solar installation, meadow reclamation and an extensive, growing private outdoor art collection.
