Dream Team

We’re interviewing architects and designers for our farm renovation. Since the project is rather extensive, with several distinct elements—restoring a pond and stream, making horse-friendly barns, renovating houses, planning an overall layout with riding areas, living areas, gardens, etc.—it’s not the kind of thing a one-stop shop can cover. So it’ll mean coordinating things between experts in various fields. (In other words, no egomaniacs allowed.) Here are some of the people we’re excited to work with…

Thomas Woltz creates landscapes that are gorgeous in a wild way, full of native plants that help the ecosystem thrive. Andrew Cogar and colleagues build inviting, unpretentious houses rooted in local architecture, the owner’s taste, and the property’s history. Thomas’s and Andrew’s teams have worked together a lot—and are thoroughly happy to collaborate. Plus their teams have been fun to spend time with, which is important, since we’ll be doing a fair amount of that. Check out their websites for some design inspiration:
