Landscape Architecture, Ecological Restoration and Planning
Historic Rutherfurd Hall is uniquely situated in the New Jersey Highlands overlooking the tranquil Allumuchy Pond. The house and property express the rich history of the Country Estate Era and the spirit of innovation.
The Master Plan for Rutherfurd Hall interprets the site’s unique place in American history while presenting the future of sustainability through the use of innovative technology and best management practices for the use of the land and water which respect the environmental significance of the Highlands Region and Rutherfurd Hall’s unique site.
Visitors to Rutherfurd Hall will experience the inherent beauty of the landscape and its historic value through educational, environmental and recreational experiences.
SED Design worked with SSP Architectural Group, planning for the restoration and repurposing of the historic landscape after SSP completed the Mountain Villa Primary School, an adaptive reuse of Rutherfurd Hall's addition.
