McDaniel Farm Park Structures

McDaniel Farm Park

This project contains two distinct categories of architecture within a new 128-acre passive park. Approximately 10 acres of the park contain a historic farm that has been restored as an interpretive 1930’s subsistence farm. Restored or reconstructed structures include a barn, blacksmith shop, sharecropper’s cabin, well house, and chicken coop. New buildings for the park include a comfort station, information kiosk, group shelter, and maintenance building. The architectural expression of the new buildings purposely contrasts to the historic farm vernacular and responds to the park environment through form, orientation and use of materials. The new park buildings incorporate sustainable design strategies including thoughtful use of window shading elements to reduce solar gain, daylighting, and natural ventilation.
