The Farm at Little Compton
Michael Vergason, Michael Vergason Landscape Architects, Ltd., with Peter Bohlin, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects

The Farm at Little Compton is a family farm that straddles a ridge-lined peninsula facing the Atlantic Ocean on the southern coast of Rhode Island. Bounded by water and set within the Sakonnet landscape, this property quietly embodies a modest agrarian character while preserving critical habitat for endangered shorebirds, coastal plants and wildlife. The Master Plan uses an existing road and walls as a skeletal structure to organize the insertion of three building compounds into the matrix of windswept coastal fields. The project artfully integrates restrained interventions with the existing fabric. This project has a lucid landscape structure and illuminates the peninsula’s striking beauty. more photos
