Architect Larry J. Wente, a partner in the design firm Gertler & Wente Architects LLP, has had his high-profile work published widely. His Dutchess County property, where the integration of a barn-like home with the surrounding farmland and meadows intentionally blurs the line between house and garden, is a favorite on Garden Conservancy Open Days. In Wave Hill circles, he is known for spearheading the 2003 restoration of Wave Hill’s historic Marco Polo Stufano Conservatory.
