Trillium House
Northern Virginia
Natural stone outcroppings and extensive bedrock inspired the celebration of stone in the design of this 50-acre site. The landscape focus is a two-level swimming pool lined with stone quarried from the site. The pool’s vanishing edge carries the eye westward to distant mountain views. The upper pool’s “beach” shoreline and native plantings create the effect of a secluded quarry pool in a forest clearing. This project won a Potomac Chapter American Society of Landscape Architecture award in 2004.
