Village Home, Canton, New York, 2016

A private residence on the campus of St. Lawrence University functions both as a private home and event space for the school. This design transformed underused lawn areas into a series of terraces for dining, gathering and gardens. A large event lawn in the rear of the house is terminated by a vine covered pergola constructed of concrete posts and timber framing. Porches and decks were added to the architecture creating stronger connections from the inside to the outdoor spaces. The project is rich in materials, using locally sourced Potsdam Sandstone mixed with New York Bluestone for paving and stone walls. Vines and shade loving ground covers lined the passage into the backyard. Thyme and Irish moss grow in between pavers on the terrace.
