“Berkshire Asian” Private Residence Great Barrington, MA

Posted on Posted in Details
OL Ltd lead firm for 2009 master plan with very hands-on owner.
  • Owner, who is a Recycling Engineer & Welder from NYC, designed the concrete water wier, created and welded the Corten steel pergola, Corten steel wier outfall.  He has interests in Asian design and applies his interpretations wherever possible for the property.
  • Limestone boulders in courtyard are from the property.  They were placed in a traditional Japanese “asymmetric balanced group” using a system of scalene triangles.  Took one day to place these 5 stones!
  • OL Ltd selected plant materials at local Nurseries with Owner and installed as design-build.
