This first semester studio with Robert Charest provided with the opportunity to develop a cancer wellness retreat center for families on a property located in Haw River, NC. Owned by Ms. Sydney Pennix, her vision was to create a space for families to come together to help in their healing process. Being inspired by her vision, we approached this project with the notion of having the structure being “born” from the land. This provided us the opportunity to use the land to help create moments of serenity and contemplation.
My group consisted of Kathryn Frye, Brian Peck and I. To follow, you will find the presentation board, a picture of our final model as well as our digital presentation. We put our heart and soul into this project and you can find a piece of each of us in each rendering.
