LIDO BEACH HOUSE
Located in Lido Beach, Brooklyn, this residence is within walking distance of the waterfront and takes its inspiration from the local landscape.
The front garden is a selection of coastal perennials, displaying the seasonal qualities of native asters, roses, and seaside goldenrod. Through the gate, the dining area and fireplace lounge are framed by bayberries and amelanchier, offering privacy from the adjacent street and a more intimate scale. A large deck wraps around the home to connect the pool, spa, and sundeck to the interior of the home as a backdrop of running water from the stone fountain enhances the quiet intimacy within the garden. The cadence of spaces feel like an extension of the home into the local landscape while also maintaining a sense of visual and audial privacy.
