Scarsdale Addition

An ongoing project with new construction, screening, plantings, stonework, a geo-thermal sub surface, and storm drainage for areas of retention. The clients requested a design that would depart from the neighborhood standard, so my challenge was to respect and relate to the existing typology while also creating something unique. Bluestone pathways, a small courtyard, street and neighbor screening, and diverse structural layers of plantings for privacy and seasonal interest were all chosen and are on their way to being established. The project will continue with additional plantings on the ground plane for sustainability and ecological diversity.
