InSitu is an eight-acre sculpture garden where nature and art dramatically interact. Nestled in the rural countryside near Redding, the property is surrounded by the 312-acre Saugatuck Waterfall Natural Area, a landscape of deciduous woodlands, rocky outcroppings, and meadows, permeated by a series of small creeks that empty into the Saugatuck River. Working with a team of architects, designers, craftsmen, and artists, owner Michael Marocco has created a richly composed showcase of architecture, horticulture, and sculpture, seamlessly woven together in a series of eighteen garden rooms. InSitu's structures were extensively renovated by New Haven-based architect Robert Orr, who drew upon their heritage as utility buildings by incorporating rustic barn beams as their framework. The house and outbuildings express the rural Connecticut vernacular spirit. Cedar shakes and deep reds and browns integrate the buildings comfortably into the landscape.
