The building is a proposed design for a new senior center,
located on the site of the oldest grove of oak trees in the
state of Connecticut, overlooking a scenic lake. An attempt
was made to keep the scale of the building as modest as
possible whilst creating a comfortable and expansive interior
gathering space. An existing fireplace and chimney are
refurbished and reemployed, and a sheltering porch faces
the lake. Natural lodge-style materials are used throughout.
