Kimberly Mercurio Landscape Architecture won the 2017 APLD International Landscape Design Award for her Cape Cod Barn and Pool, design located in Orleans, MA. The project won a silver and was commended by the judges for her pool terrace design, the softening of the bluestone paving with creepers and re-use of barn materials to make furniture.
About The Landscape Design
This award winning landscape design is located near the National Seashore for a home in Orleans, MA on Cape Cod. The landscape design combined both traditional and modern Cape Cod aesthetics. The plan encourages a connection between indoors and out. The barn opens to a dry laid bluestone terrace with joints of creeping thyme, and wraps around the building providing walkways and defined outdoor seating areas. The pool has bluestone tiles, a pebble sheen finish, a bluestone pool coping, and a hidden track automated pool cover. The barn is new construction; it has a spacious dining area, with sliding barn doors with copper screens that open onto the bluestone terrace and views of hydrangeas and summer flowering shrubs. Wood from a pre-existing barn was salvaged to assemble simple outdoor furnishings. The barn also contains changing rooms and a bath allowing it to double as a pool house. This vacation home is perfect for Summer entertaining.
