GLOUCESTER RETREAT Gloucester, VA
Six acres on Wilson Creek in Gloucester, Virginia host this private retreat. Waterstreet Studio was engaged to develop a master plan for the property to guide the development of the primary residence, workshop, studio, pool, pool house and associated landscapes with careful consideration of river and organization of garden spaces. The implemented plan recalls the region’s agrarian and tidal patterns while creating spaces for recreation, meditation and sculpture. As part of the project, over 500 feet of shoreline was restored and tens of thousand of daffodils planted, paying tribute to Gloucester’s past reputation as the daffodil capital of America.
