Great Oak

The residence is located within the 190 acre WRA and expresses design elements of the Western Reserve architecture. The designated status of the campus and heritage quality of this property with majestic 125 year-old oaks surrounding the residence necessitated careful curation to respect historical significance. The existing 6000 sf house was being expanded to include indoor pool, gymnasium, entertainment lounge and two-car garage. The landscape architecture team was challenged to respond to the rich history of the site, this new addition, and create a beautiful landscape that met the needs of a large active family witha sustainable approach.
