Project Description

Haystack Mountain Recreation Building

This recreation building—pool house, entertainment space and office space—for a natural foods executive was designed as a retreat, completely separate from the original house. Built with architect David Barrett of Barrett Studio Architects, the space was designed with a variety of green building specifications including solar thermal radiant heat, polished concrete floors, a ground mount photovoltaic system and a green roof with native grasses. Other notable building details include a custom-fabricated steel tie rod system to support the office roof and the west folding wall doors to open the interior to the outdoors.
