Deerfield Residence

Deerfield Residence

A former potato field, the Deerfield Residence is now an active illustration of the natural succession responsible for creating the upland forest landscape that presides of the southern border of the site. Utilizing a clean and understated aesthetic, the exposed aggregate terraces and sculptural rim flow pool strike a counterpoint against the flowing fescue meadow  that dominates the property. Masses of native trees and shrubs have established through natural succession, accenting the sweeping expanse of the meadow. Clipped hedges enclose formal gathering spaces, acting as bridges between natural and formal spaces. The result of this successional approach is a landscape the continues to grow and evolve, responding to natural systems in exciting and unanticipated ways.
