A prominent home on a prominent site, Bridgewater is a voluminous work of architecture that features sweeping horizontals, cascading forms, and a strong axial composition aligned to the summer solstice. The site is a 4-acre peninsula on the Geist Reservoir, exhibiting a complex shoreline, a forest guarded entry, and panoramic views of the larger reservoir. On the one hand, the home and landscape are grand and sumptuous, yet, in experience, you find subtlety and fine scale detailing. The auto court features carefully selected paving modules that match perfectly the stone exterior of the home’s vertical massings and the jointing aligns with key moments of the architecture. This effect is subtle, but impressive. A series of tree allées radiate from the home as an extension of the architecture into the landscape. Each allée, a new species, differentiate each zone of the property and begin to operate as “wings.” A dramatic poolscape overlooks an infinity pool and the greater reservoir. A bosque of Hawthorne guards a circular fire space on the exposed peninsula point. The moves in the landscape attempted to mirror those of the architecture while further expressing the unique aspects of this place.
