This project involved designing a Master Plan for new construction on a property with 400 feet of Lake Mendota shoreline. ZDA was responsible for complete site design, stormwater management (as the unique architecture proposed no gutters), and landscape and garden design. The property is located on the highest limestone bluff along the lake, with an exceptional view of the Capitol and City of Madison skyline. It was imperative to retain stormwater on-site, due to the prominence of this point, so the stormwater management is based on multiple infiltration devices including rain gardens, basins, and dry streams.
