For a contemporary house clad in granite, lead-coated copper, and wood, with overscale windows that open to blur the boundary between interior and out-of-doors, JMMDS designed an exquisite tapestry of massive granite boulders and mostly native plantings. Stone entry paths and terraces are made of thick granite planks, while wooden decking seems to float over swathes of mosses, ferns, and native groundcovers. The serene pool and terrace, sited to overlook the harbor beyond, are surrounded by salt- and wind-tolerant gardens.
