Keith Simpson To Discuss Landscape Design for Prefab Home
October 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
New Canaan resident and American Society of Landscape Design Fellow Keith Simpson will present “Landscape Design for the Installation of a Blu home” on October 15 @ 7 pm via zoom. The program is part of October4design, a month-long celebration of New Canaan’s architecture, art, design and community. The presentation is free.
In August 2014, the owners of a four-acre parcel in northern New Canaan decided to build a modular home in the postmodern style. They hired Blu Homes, a premium prefabrication company based in California. The sleek designs with open floor plans are energy efficient and made with sustainable materials.
Keith will share his experience of clearing the steep, heavily wooded land, which had never been built on before, preparing the building foundation, accepting delivery of the Blu model, and then finishing the landscaping once the house was sited. The challenging project took many months and required creativity and ingenuity. Keith’s zoom presentation includes photographs documenting every step.
