An estate at home in the subtle and the sublime.

Landscape for an art collector in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of NW Philadelphia sits on 8 acres of land with a stunning drop of elevation as the property backs onto a state park. The client asked for “Poetry and the Sublime” which we defined with the following statement: We are in another world that is no more than this world perceived with unprecedented attentiveness. Charged with creating a landscape to be walked, experienced and watched we lightly sculpted the land to highlight or frame the bodily experience in landscape over time.
