Westover Housing Landscape • Westover, Massachusetts

The 38 acre site is predominantly open, fallow farmland with no existing structures. Historically the site has supported a nursery, farm crops, and currently is used as a vegetable market with a small gardening plot. The significant components of the site are a pine plantation stands and a few mature beeches and maples.

The design is intended to challenge conventional housing developments to be richer in landscape expression and experience and more creative in their definition of living patterns.

The houses are oriented east-west for passive solar gain along the longest mass of the building and for a long frontage of northern light along the opposite side of the house.
