A Renaissance Garden in San Quirico D’orcia

Lake Waramaug Residence

Hidden in the wooded hills high above Lake Waramaug, the owners built a distinctive contemporary style house. McCobb and Associates worked with the client to develop a site plan for their property that was equal in character and quality. The ground plane at the base of the house was laid out in blocks of color of varying shades of green that mimic the geometry of the architecture. On the opposite side of the house a contemporary-take on a traditional meadow completes the panorama that they enjoy from their floor-to-ceiling height windows. The meadow was laid out in broad swaths of uniform color "fields" of Panicum, Rudbeckia, and Joe-Pye Weed, resulting in a living landscape painting.
