A one hundred and twelve acre country farm outside of Princeton, New Jersey developed in collaboration with Franck & Lohsen Architects and Blackburn Architects. A new barn complex, main house, guest house, and road network were sited on this previously undeveloped property in a manner to maximize scenic views, protect natural resources, and provide privacy between different uses. Designed garden spaces around the house include a pool garden, a terraced rear lawn, and an outdoor fireplace, and are set within a restored open woodland with new native meadows beyond. Entry gates and signage were also designed.
Land stewardship activities included providing guidance on removal of exotic, invasive plants, woodland plant regeneration, and establishment and management of native plant meadows.
Jamie Brown designed and served as the project manager for this project while at Graham Landscape Architecture.
