Boxborough, MA – Allen & Major Associates, Inc. (A&M) provided landscape architectural design for the 244 unit Paddock Estates at Boxborough. Paddock Estates is a multi-family development situated on 67 acres that abut woods, wetlands, a stream, stone walls, and horse pastures.
A&M collaborated with JPI and Sheskey Architects to create the community.
The designers utilized the unique wooded New England landscape as both inspiration and a feature of the campus. The result is a fusion of timeless New England design materials with the amenities residents desire in a contemporary community.
The 11-building campus includes a 6,000sf state-of-the-art clubhouse with a game room, business center, pet washing station, fully equipped fitness center, a heated pool with a cabana, and two outdoor fire features with areas for lounging.
The design combined extensive hardscape, lush plantings, and active recreational areas. Design elements include outdoor showers and bar at the cabana, barbeque and dining areas. A mix of active and passive recreational landscape architectural site amenities include a basketball court, multiple stone fire pits, a children’s playground, meandering walking paths for connectivity, an expansive enclosed dog park, and a bocce court. Beyond the grounds, viewsheds were carefully framed so that residents can see glimpses of an adjacent horse grazing pasture.
