The Rehamping the Barn Class is concluding their semester’s study with a final design review this Thursday, May 4th in the Faculty Lounge in FPH.
All community members are welcome.
From 12-1pm join us for a casual drop-in session when community members can chat with students about their designs and ask questions. Lunch will be available.
From 1-3:30 there will be a formal design review with local architects, landscape architects, contractors, as well as the Hampshire Acting Director of Facilities and Grounds, Larry Archey in attendance.
Both the site and the program have been chosen – the Barn will be repurposed as a flexible and dynamic student space. Mixed Nuts will also have a home in the Barn in its new location near the Cole Science Greenhouse. Students in the class have been working in groups to develop a series of schematic redesigns for the material harvested from the Barn. These designs will serve as an idea bank for the professional team of Kuhn Riddle Architects, Berkshire Design Landscape Architects and Wright Construction, Inc who will develop the schemes further technically and implement the final resolution.
Feel free to stop by at any point on Thursday, get some lunch, and check out what the class been working on.
The more input we have in this process the better! If you cannot make the design review, please stay tuned for blog postings of our work. Feel free to see posts below about or class thus far, or check out the About Us page for more details on the history of the Barn Project.
