SAS+Associates was asked to create a unique residential community along the north shore of Lake Superior.
Majestic views of Lake Superior, the addition of residential homesites, community areas, environmental elements and nature had to come together in designing Larsmont Cottages.
SAS+Associates located buildings to preserve existing vegetation, designed the landscape and hardscape materials to provide the unique settings for the buildings. In addition, SAS+Associates created a pedestian spine using central walkways and patios to connect the buildings creating an active pedestrian environment.
Detailed grading design performed by SAS+Associates allowed for preservation of a majority of the existing trees, allowed for innovative stormwater elements that fit into the landscape, created larger natural areas, and grounded the buildings to create a unified project.
