Description
The understated grounds of this coeducational boarding school and children's camp were carefully orchestrated by one of its owners, distinguished architectural journalist Douglas Haskell, between the 1930s and 1960s. The campus is an unorthodox synthesis - a celebration of a traditional rural environment, where physical change was predicated on incremental, pragmatic decisions; a manifestation of its designer's high-style modernist ideals; and a freewheeling, even idiosyncratic, exercise in individualism that characterized much of the region's rustic architecture.
