Bridgehampton, New York
Set on twelve acres, this residential property features a renovated estate house from 1927 set within towering groves of mature existing trees. The concept of the site design was to build a display setting for the owner’s expansive blue-chip sculpture collection. The Landscape Architect collaborated closely with the artists and their foundations to transform their ideas into the ideal placement of each piece.
Garden spaces from the original estate that once housed roses, cutting flowers and vegetables have now been re-purposed to exhibit collections of sculptures by Isamu Noguchi and Walter De Maria.
Inside each of these spaces are newly designed viewing pavilions that act as destinations within the greater landscape. A system of curvilinear gravel paths provides circulation and organization throughout the property, so one can stroll in an orderly fashion while viewing the sculpture collection.
