Master plans are in progress on this beautiful shoreland permit project through the State of Maine. Kezar Lake is primed to be a 2020-2021 flagship project for Zachary Berger Associates. Early involvement in projects like these is highly recommended and welcomed as part of our design service ideology.
Commissioned in the Fall of 2018, this property in Lovell, Maine is nothing short of special. Set deep in the woods, the new residence will have beautiful views of the northeastern sector of the White Mountain National Forest.
Rich, ecological diversity on the Kezar Lake project is apparent and will be managed and maintained as the built environment comes to fruition. A Red Oak, Sugar Maple, Paper Birch and Hemlock forest occupy the canopy layer while native blueberry, bunchberry and wintergreen spread the ground plane.
The client’s wishes are to see environmental stewardship practices held to the highest standards while bringing in new and attractive species to the softscape. Also of importance will be the use of local and native stone. The initial site excavation unearthed plenty of gems to be used in the final retaining boulder wall.
The overarching objective for Kezar lake includes creating a naturalistic, Maine lakeside theme. Specifically, ZBA will address drainage issues as a result of new construction, provide new driveway layouts and create options for a terraced patio area adjacent to the residence.
The home build is scheduled to be completed in early Summer of 2020 with a landscape implementation to follow soon thereafter. We’ll be sure to keep you updated!
