Merit Award Winner
Matthew Willinger - Doyle Herman Design Associates LLC, Greenwich, Connecticut
Willinger was tasked with transforming this large property to include a flat play area for recreation, an organic vegetable garden, and the absence of chemicals in landscape maintenance. In the end he gave the owners much more, including new masonry walls and a patio, fencing and lighting, and new formal garden areas. Pictured here is an outdoor fireplace that extends the enjoyment of the landscape and also serves as a striking focal point centered on the living room’s French doors. The stone for the fireplace was sourced from local reclaimed materials to ensure that it would match existing stone walls on the property.
