Lathhouse, Sagaponack, New York
This hidden property in the Hamptons was re-envisioned from the ground up. Responding to cues from the minimalist forms and detailing of the architecture, the landscape design extends architectural lines into the landscape ground plane, and is organized around a series of rectilinear outdoor rooms: auto court, entry garden, lawns, terraces, pool, and tennis. The entry garden plays off the repetition of architectural fenestration, creating a rhythm of plantings and paving elements within this linear arrival space. A generous south lawn terrace, adjacent to the home’s public area allows for flexible activities and active play. Separated by a “pleated” meadow, a lower lawn is accessible from the main house and pool house, and provides an intimate tapis vert and foreground to the flower garden, which extends architectural lines of the pool house.
