Project Description

Gracefully situated at the transition between ecosystems, the new Killens Pond State Park Nature Center hovers over the pond as it emerges from the hardwood forest. Simultaneously lifting spirits and fading into the landscape, it serves a single and determined purpose-keeping nature at the forefront.

Transparency and openness unite interior spaces with the surrounding landscape, offering wide perspectives of the pond, close inspections of the forest, and opportunities to contemplate the natural forces which dynamically act upon them.
