Head of the Harbor Residence

Nantucket, MA

Project Description

Currently under construction, the landscape design for this 6 acre site on Nantucket included the siting and connectivity of a residence, pool house, pool, and barn structures.  Water views were carefully considered and studied in the design process as they relate to existing trees and topography, proposed buildings, and the driveway approach.  Set within the wetland resource area, the project required state and local permitting and included the restoration of a depleted salt marsh on the property and extensive removal of invasive trees and shrubs.  A limited pallet of site specific native plantings including Bayberry, Scrub Oak, Arrowwood Viburnum, and Little Bluestem will be massed throughout the site, further connecting the introduced elements to the surrounding context.
