Private Residence, Blue Hill Maine

The woods road leading to the dock is on the lowest point of the property and would flood at various times of the year. Additionally, the client and I had a conversation on the back burner to create a garden room for quiet meditaion somewhere on the property.


When a raised road to create a "bridge" with a culvert was conceived as a solution for the flooded road, it presented an opportunity to increase the use of stone for the creation of a meditation garden in the unimproved woods space nearby.
