Woodland Residence

St. David’s, PA

 Sited on the edge of a steeply wooded hillside, this property is organized by a series of garden rooms unified by the presence of water. A main house, garage and guest quarters are embedded into the topography, with the upper terraces consisting of an auto court, kitchen garden and pool with a cascading edge facing a distant view. Significant stands of trees were preserved, and frame quiet spaces along a shaded path where the water source begins. Channeled through a runnel, the water flows through woodland understory and fern groves, and dramatically descends through a stone rill into a water channel to the terraces below. The integration of water through every landscape space focuses the experience inward and invites discovery.
