2018 CTASLA HONOR AWARD FOR RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
For the “Engaging the Native Landscape” project, the home is perched above one of the largest privately owned freshwater wetlands in Rye. The goal of DHDA’s landscape design was to engage the wetland as an asset, and concurrently provide outdoor living spaces around the house that reflected the naturalistic feel of the property. On the 3.2-acre property, with one-third of it wetland, it was essential to embrace this natural feature in the design.
2018 CTASLA MERIT AWARD FOR RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
For the “A New England Respite” project in New Canaan, DHDA’s family-focused design program included the siting of architecture, various site amenities and, of paramount importance, the desire to insulate the property from the surrounding suburban cluster.
