The design of this community center, which is located within Claude Moore Park in Loudoun County, Va., followed the desires of community residents to reflect a “farmacular” architecture, in contrast to the big-box suburban sprawl that surrounds the historic park setting. Accordingly, the building is organized as a farm compound of simple connected masses that orient to the park entry drive and adjacent woodland. A traditional barn-and-silo profile fronts smaller “out buildings” that extend from the central lobby and contain the gymnasium, community rooms, and teen and childcare areas.
