...An island retreat from scratch
Daune knew her clients well, having worked with them in coastal Rhode Island and the Back Bay of Boston. Her challenge was to bring the same sensibilities to their new home on the coast of Maine. Some things never change. Their requirements were for a high level of human comfort and, equally, canine comfort, with convenient outdoor spaces to share with family and friends as well as lots of color! By collaborating with an experienced Maine landscape firm, Daune was able to marry the house to the land. She reestablished privacy by using mixed native species and defined the client’s water views with minimal disturbance.
