Located on 118 acres of property in Stamford, CT, the Stamford Museum and Nature Center is an art, nature, history, and agricultural science museum. As a way to expand the Museum’s educational services, it was decided to build a farmhouse that would act as an education center. The Farmhouse would be the first education building addition to the Museum in 50 years.
The project includes the design of a new Farmhouse, Plaza and a new Maple Sugar House. The Farmhouse is approximately 3,500 sqft. programmed as a multi-use facility for adults and environmental educational space for school programs. It also includes a multi-purpose room for groups to gather in all weather conditions for demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on learning in addition to a commercial kitchen and toilet facilities included as part of the program. The Maple Sugar House is approximately 500 sqft. and replicates the size and functions of the existing house.
Kohler Ronan provided MEP/FP design services as well as Technology design services. Technology design included security services throughout the Farmhouse and audio-visual for conference rooms, training rooms, and classrooms.
