ZDA assisted this client in selecting the site and architect. Once the site was chosen, ZDA assisted with planning, permitting, driveway design and engineering, landscape architecture, custom pillar and ironwork design, and garden design which allowed this rural writer’s retreat to develop naturally out of its 11-acre site. On-site materials including reclaimed glaciated stone, native plant communities, and framed views were incorporated into the architecture and landscape architecture, including retrofitting an old haul-road for a retaining wall-free driveway.
