Sonoma Land Trust Baylands Center


This modest building, designed to fit in among other adjacent barn structures, is intended to act as an information and entertainment center for a Land Trust that is restoring the adjacent Bay wetlands. Built in part from reclaimed materials salvaged from nearby collapsed barns, this is a simple form that functions primarily as a porch overlooking what will eventually be the new tidelands. The exterior wood latticework defines the gable form, yet allows transparency from the glazed interior space. A series of sliding glass doors enable the building to completely open to the outside, or when closed to function as a protected space in inclement weather. The Land Trust uses the structure for fund-raising events, educational tours, board meetings, and sometimes just as a place to watch the rain.
