Connecticut Beachside Casual

Private Residence, Westport, Connecticut

An elegant yet casual beachside residence with intimate spaces for dining, entertaining and relaxing. Separation of public and private space is accomplished at the front entry using crisp white cedar fencing with an arbor and gate to highlight the main entry. Material choices were made to enhance beach life using smooth beach gravel combined with silver travertine pavers with light reflecting qualities. The narrow palette of plantings in shades of green with multiple textures provide calm and intimate privacy, and need low maintenance.
