Locust Valley, New York
A clearing in the wooded site is the setting for a house composed of four interconnected pavilions, each with a sculpted roof to capture light and air into interior courtyards. Responding to the interplay of pavilions, the landscape design utilizes different types of planted forms: geometric bosques, random groves, repetitive rows, singular specimens and hedge wall, to delineate arrival, integrate parking/service and define outdoor rooms. The interior courtyards emphasize intimacy with a simple palette of cut stone and moss and small distinct trees.
