Offices, Library, Exhibit Hall, Classrooms and Security functions are accommodated in this distinctive 5,000 sq ft visitors’ center. Nestling into the north edge of a sweeping meadow, this building was designed to LEED guidelines. Orientation, window openings, and roof overhang maximize passive solar advantage, natural light and natural ventilation. Peeled pine columns and manufactured heavy timber beams reflect the forested site and use renewable resources. Rainwater is captured for reuse, and geothermal further enhances efficiency.
