Five Gables Farm
Hess Landscape Architects
Client: Private Residential
Project Type: Single Family
Project Location: Newtown Square, PA
A classic oval-shaped pool was designed with a vanishing edge detail, a separate four-season spa, a new open pool pavilion, and a collection of remnant structures suggesting a time-worn ruin or bygone farmstead, adapted for reuse. An outdoor kitchen space was developed closer to the main house. To connect this space with the pool, a recirculating series of ponds, rills, and waterfalls flow downgrade towards the pool, ending in a bog planting.
