TMG provided all civil, building, interiors and systems construction for this new 7,400 SF timber-framed community facility located on a 50-acre farm and nature center in Loudoun County.
The community building features a performance hall with a curved stage, large projection screen, and separate audiovisual control room; large reception hall with double-sided fireplace; a commercial kitchen; and conference facilities on the lower level.
The facility was completed with a stone and heavy timber façade, cedar shake siding and standing seam metal roof to blend with other facilities on the campus. The interiors were designed to be welcoming and to seamlessly connect with the surrounding landscape. This was accomplished through the use of natural and organic finishes such as the exposed timber framing and wood details, stone fireplace, windows that provide expansive views of the pond and surrounding nature, and multiple doors that open onto a large stone terrace.
The site also includes lighted basketball and tennis courts with separate restroom and shower facilities and a riding ring for the equestrian facility located on the premises.
