Each year the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) awards professional awards to the year's best residential landscape designs. We have the winners from this year's competition, from a brilliantly reimagined former rock quarry (above) in Connecticut to a home in Mexico with spectacular outdoor rooms.
ASLA Award Winner Maple Hill Residence in Westwood, MA, by Stephen Stimson Associates Landscape Architects, Cambridge, MA
The Maple Hill Residence is a five-acre residential landscape comprised of a new house, barn, pool and outbuildings. The design sets the residence to one side of the property leaving the majority of the site open for the development of the landscape program. Close collaboration between the Architect, Landscape Architect and Client created a home that blends the programmatic needs of the family with an interactive and resourceful mind-set about the landscape they inhabit.
