The Grass Garden at LongHouse Reserve

Eric Groft of Oehme, van Sweden met recently with Jack Lenor Larsen and Abby Jane Brody at LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton to discuss revisions to the Grass Garden.

LongHouse, located on 16 acres in East Hampton, NY, is the home of internationally known textile designer, author, and collector Jack Lenor Larsen. ´╗┐LongHouse was built as a case study to exemplify a creative approach to contemporary life-style and to provide visitors the ability to experience art in living spaces.

Inspired by the famous Japanese shrine at Ise, LongHouse contains 13,000 square feet, 18 spaces on four levels. The gardens present the designed landscape as an art form in its own right. The grounds also offer a diversity of sites for the preservation of multifarious species where they can flourish for generations to come.
