Rough Point is set at the eastern and southern corner of Newport, a site of jagged granite outcroppings.

A Monumental Project

The Newport Foundation restores the grand roof and stonework of Rough Point in Newport, Rhode Island.

The family areas of the house surround a serene swimming pool, as the footprint of the house steps away from South Ocean Blvd. to create a private garden enclosure. The tower, a design element found in many historic Palm Beach homes, is placed at the transition from the formal to the informal rooms.

Carving a Niche

Phillip James Dodd redefines Palm Beach architecture with a new Spanish Mediterranean home.

The back of the house has a porch and a sweeping second-floor balcony that opens from the center of three bedrooms.

Vineyard Shingle Style

Patrick Ahearn Architect designs a summer homethat fits in with the aesthetic of this New England island.

To enhance the harmony of various greens when the house was painted all one shade, Kathryn Herman went with the smart geometry of clipped orbs and rectangles mingled with variegated hakonechloa ornamental grass.

Layering the Past

When a landscape designer merges past and present, a family reaps rewards that influence their love of nature now and into the future.
