Press, by La Guardia Design

“Marine Meadow, designed by LaGuardia Design Group, is an example of new infrastructure creating opportunities to improve and restore the environmental systems of a site. The pre-existing landscape comprised of sprawling impervious surfaces, overgrown ornamental and invasive plantings, and low-lying, non-FEMA compliant structures, posing a safety hazard to the surrounding area. The re-development of the site opened the door for a new design that re-harmonizes the site with its surrounding natural systems. The home and guest house rise out of the grade, anchored by a native planting palate, blurring the lines between structure and site. The jury commented, “This project has a great sensitivity to the environment, while still being functional and beautiful and is a good example to the profession for a restoration project on the coast.”
