Case Study

Private Residence


The Private residence is a 7,900 s.f., single family residence located on Galloupes Point, Swampscott, MA. The two-story contemporary structure is located on property that provides dramatic views of the Swampscott coastline. However, the site is located within a neighborhood that is characterized by traditional New England style homes which are located close together. Landscape Design services integrated this distinctive residence into the established character of its surroundings. The engineering design staff worked closely with the building architect to position the structure on the site to take advantage of the various ocean views while ensuring that the views of existing residences where not compromised. Special attention was devoted to creating usable exterior spaces that were logical extensions of the interior rooms. Formal and informal outdoor spaces were designed to compliment the architecture and provide distinct separation between areas for social, family and individual activities.
