NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND
Passage Rocks is a modern home overlooking Narragansett Bay. The current owners undertook a total renovation of the house and hired Drake Design Studio to develop a master plan for the landscape. Terraces, grill area and pergola, a stone spa, restoration of an indoor pool, steps, pathways and gardens were all added to enhance the outdoor living space and take advantage of the dramatic views. Native plants were emphasized and stone was carefully selected and placed to create steps and paths that follow the natural contours of the land and blend with the surrounding rock. DDS designed outdoor railings with cables to minimize their visual impact and the owners chose to carry this same design into the interiors. DDS focused on simple forms to echo the modern architecture and celebrate the stunning site.
