Water Mill, New York
In collaboration with the owner, an award-winning interior designer, the master plan for Head of Pond Residence was an exploration of outdoor living within the garden. Whimsical blue gates, designed to match the existing entry door to the house, lead down into an outdoor pool and living area paved with irregular flagstone and furnished with sofas and a dining room table. The swimming pool coping knits into the surrounding paving pattern to form one seamless surface, as each area flows into the next. Adjacent to the end of the pool is a spa and waterfall for private relaxation. Mowed lawn paths circulate the remaining property, winding through a dwarf fruit tree orchard and woodland garden, eventually leading to a hidden outdoor shower and changing area.
