Chesapeake Retreat Garden

Situated on a bluff overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, this garden was designed as part of the client's desire for a lush green garden at their vacation home. The plants were carefully chosen to create depth and interest using texture and scale. Layers of different evergreens and flowering trees carve out different private and secluded areas for meditation and contemplation. The design of the landscape was completed with a custom fence and a custom pergola.

Commercial Project (Outdoor Bar)

We found a real 1960s Chesapeake deadrise oyster boat, turned it into a bar, and designed a fitting boat shed around it. The shed roof and siding was reclaimed from a nearby barn, the bar stools are made from boat stands and the boat sits on rail road tracks so that it can be moved from the building creating a multipurpose pavilion.

Waterfront Farmhouse

Inspired by tidewater farms of Maryland's Eastern Shore, this home was designed as an ensemble of buildings connected by enclosed and open porches. The modern farmhouse looks as if it were composed of structures that were built over time, and that were then connected. This helps with the overall massing and scale of the house. The tidewater farm features river views on three sides.
