Design Philosophy

Nicholas Pappas, the design architect of Wessynton and member of Deigert & Yerkes Associates, was present at a Special Board meeting on March 5th, 1973. At this meeting with the Board of Directors, the newly-formed Architectural Control Committee, and members of the Association, he discussed the original thinking involved in the design of Wessynton.

Mr. Pappas, when specifically asked about fences pointed out that David N. Yerkes considered the lots too big to fence to establish boundaries as would be done in townhouses. Fences would cut the natural flow of the terrain. An attempt was made to preserve as much of the natural plantings as possible.

In regard to Wessynton colors, Mr. Pappas pointed out that natural earthen colors were chosen to fit into the surrounding area of Wessynton. David N. Yerkes and Associates stayed away from primary colors other than for the sole use as accent colors. In this connection, he pointed out that the original thinking of his firm was to use natural materials as much as possible.
