Deer Crest, Utah
Summa Ars Architects
The Macey residence is a custom home located near the top of the Deer Crest residential development at Deer Valley. The building lot provides unobstructed views of eastern Summit County and Jordanelle Reservoir, along with full ski in/ski out access to one of Deer Valley’s ski trails.
RiverStone Design Group (a former LEI company) was hired by the architect to perform site grading and landscape design services. The downhill topography of the site required significant retaining wall design to accommodate the home as well as site drainage requirements. The selection of plant materials was based upon the homeowner’s specific likes and dislikes, and to create a native, water-wise landscape that would provide buffering of the road and maintain views. Coordination between the client, architect, civil and geotechnical engineers, and the Design Review Committee was critical in obtaining building permits and approvals for the landscape and grading plan.
