ARTISTREE COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER
South Pomfret, VT
Recipient of the 2019 Vermont Public Places Honor Award
ArtisTree is a community arts center and gallery located in South Pomfret, Vermont. The ordered master plan was a response to providing a subtle campus-like atmosphere to the vernacular structures and the agricultural landscape within this historic village.
The architectural change of use: dairy barn to art studios; farmhouse to gallery; and grange to theater, required a strong visual framework, clear pedestrian connections and a mix of public, semi-public and private spaces.
Quarried Vermont schist walls, tabletop-flat Goshen stone walks and terraces, and a native plant palette provide a cohesive aesthetic and clear, efficient functionality.
