Elderly Services Inc.

Middlebury, VT | 2004

[With Bread Loaf Corporation]

A new approach to elderly day care, this building models itself on a traditional New England farmhouse with the hopes of welcoming its participants into a familiar setting. The building incorporates sustainable design strategies, both passive and active, from orienting its most prominent façade to the south and welcoming the sun inside to a solar hot water system. Enlivened with abundant daylight, the building and landscape host a wide variety of activities from cooking, arts and crafts, and pool to community dining, piano recitals, and even golf.
