GARDER RESIDENCE

Meyer Studio Land Architects as Landscape Architects

This unique 240-acre residential property exists outside the village 
of Paatsalu, Estonia, on the edge of the Baltic Sea.  Nestled within 
a nature preserve, the site is defned by centuries-old stone walls, 
juniper pine forests, and meadows, but lacked hierarchy and a 
sense of arrival.  A place to retire, the client wanted to gently 
develop the land with a new residence, a machine shed/guest 
house, greenhouse, boathouse, and a range of unique destinations 
that would allow her to contemplate the beauty of nature.  MSLA’s 
master plan brings clarity and refnement to the historic homestead, 
honors the existing natural elements and provides a framework to 
experience the land in a revealing progression of spaces that orient 
visitors to the sea, sky and meadows.
