Hollander Design Landscape Architects
Hollander Design’s intent for this waterfront home was to reconnect the landscape experiences to the recently renovated house. To do so, the firm realigned garden spaces to be on axis with home entrances and important views, created well-defined garden rooms off of key living areas, and created an allee to direct and focus views at the entrance.
Created as a family compound for multiple generations, this home offers a wide variety of spaces. Family and guests can enjoy a secluded pool away from harsh ocean winds, watch a game from the tennis court pavilion or from above on the guesthouse roof terrace, and entertain large parties on an expansive lawn. Smaller garden rooms throughout the property allow for more intimate and casual moments and connect indoor functions with outdoor.
The result is an elegant home and landscape that feels connected to its geography yet balanced and in relationship to the home’s architecture.
