River's Edge is a multi-phased, environmentally integrated development on an eleven acre site, graded barren by a previous owner. The program required a residence and private environmental research center to be integrated with an intensely landscaped site involving water coursers, wet-lands and experimental orchards, all of which are part of the ongoing research. The project is also intended to be exemplary in how design professionals can collaborate with other environmental scientists to preserve and enhance our built and natural environment.
Landscape Architects: Jack Smith FAIA and Peter Ker Walker ASLA.
