A CLOSER LOOK AT THE PROJECT
This project was a design and construction project developed for a private residence in New York’s Hudson Valley. The residence was a contemporary stucco home perched on a steep hillside.
During design development it was determined that the project would incorporate a custom pool with a spa and infinity edge. Some of the onsite features that we wanted to take advantage of were the existing ¾ acre pond behind the house as well as the view and potential for an infinity edge provided pool by the steep slope. The slope was also a great challenge that was overcome by the construction of a system of terraced retaining walls.
We designed this frequently used entertainment space to include separate sitting areas – one for relaxing in shaded/ protected space and another major area situated in full sun. We incorporated the following elements into the landscape scheme paying particular attention to the human interaction with the space.
