AT COFFEE RIDGE
The Gardens at Coffee Ridge starts with the design of several support structures for bulk storage, vehicle maintenance, horse stables, and staff living areas.
We began by studying the placement of the building in various clearings for staff to enjoy the natural environment as well. The shape, layout, and materials of the building take the context of the woods and clearings into consideration.
The "Back of House" structure above uses a circular shape to provide an outwardly focus emphasis on the surrounding natural area. The staff bunkhouse was removed from the circle to engage the nearby clearing offering the staff great views of the nearby clearing. The circular shape also provides the ability for equipment storage and mechanic shop to have a more functional approach to retrieving equipment for repair.
Schematic floor plans and models begin to illustrate how the home looks and lays out.
