The challenge for this project was to transform an old barn compound into a public gathering space.
All of the structures are organized around a large public green space. On one end of the green space is the Monastic Heritage Center.
On the other end of the green space is the new Abbey Store and Cafe.
The Abbey Store
The cloister is used as a historical icon representative of monasteries. It also guides quests between points of interest.
This cloister guides guests to the Prayer Walk.
Another cloister leads from the Monastic Heritage Center to the Bonsai Garden.
The Bonsai Garden contains trees labored over and sculptured by the Monks. It also provides a respite for guests.
The existing barn contains an history of monasticism and this Monastery.
An impressive amount of structure shapes the roof of the barn.
The interior of the Monastic Heritage Center contains lots of natural light and exposed structure.
The Abbey Store and Cafe also contains exposed structure.
