East Hampton Village
This complex property had a variety of opportunities for private spaces, reflective inlets, pathways, meditative corners, and dining and entertainment areas. I created a three-tiered, layered installment with the perennial garden off the pool, conceiving its layers one at a time, so they would appear to spring forth from each other like they had naturally evolved over time. I used a variety of complimentary colors that emphasized a playful and inviting aesthetic. I also sculpted surprising nooks and secret spaces in and around the property. Lights were added to pathways to instill a magical feeling. A truss was built and extended with ivies over a long, wooden, outdoor dining table, that could shield the sun in the afternoon, and remain just as beautiful when lit at night. The patio around the pool was laid with rustic brick and surrounded by gardens planted to evolve and change throughout the seasons.
