Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects

Project Details

Situated on sixty acres on the coast of Rhode Island, the clients of this New England farm were looking for a comprehensive landscape vision that would infuse their property with characteristics of the regional vernacular in a relaxed, comfortable style. Hoerr Schaudt’s design for the property involved a thorough edit of the site, uniting the vast landscape into a cohesive structure discreetly inserting surprises around every corner. The comprehensive rejuvenation of the site was performed with expert subtlety, crafting a landscape that looked as if it had been there all along. 

Using mature trees along the entrance drive, the formerly unremarkable arrival sequence was transformed into a dignified, rustic alleé. Other spaces that add interest to the site include a cutting garden and a reconstructed, antique party barn. The design of the landscape effortlessly moves between farm and sophisticated country estate, providing an array of experiences for the clients’ varied needs and interests.
