Congratulations to the design team and Newland Communities for a beautiful award-winning project! AIA Wilmington presented LS3P with both a 2015 AIA Honor Award, which is the AIA’s highest design award, and a People’s Choice award for the Wendell Falls Farmhouse in Wendell, NC. The Farmhouse serves as an amenities center for a residential development and includes community gathering spaces, administrative offices, a café, and fitness center. Drawing heavily upon the vernacular architecture of North Carolina’s farms and tobacco barns, this rustic wood, stone, metal, and glass building harmonizes with its adjacent forests and pastures while providing a welcoming center of activity for residents and guests. The jurors noted that the “magic of the design is the reference to the farmland and barns that once stood on this site as the only structures.”
Laura Miller (not pictured) served as Project Manager and Dean Webb as Senior Designer. Dean accepted the award. Congratulations to them and all who contributed.
