Grounds by Design - Fine Landscapes
Here is the link to the Vermont architect. As I was the photographer for the landscape designer/implementer only, I can also connect you to that firm as well as the stone mason.
It is an impressive riverside site. I have additional photos if you are interested.

Best Regards,
Matt Giroux

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Steeply Beautiful Slope Retention
This property's depth keeps its steep retaining wall from overwhelming the view. The natural rock provides an interesting contrast to the modern architectural lines. Climate matters. In California and other dry-climate areas, a lake like this would not be sustainable unless it was a collection pond holding and filtering water for irrigation.
