Drawing from the community’s farm-to-table theme with modern interpretations of agricultural building forms, Harvest’s newest amenity buildings terminate the linear green axis and amenities that form the spine of the community.

A porch is where a community gathers for events — big, small, and everything in between. The event pavilion, thefrontPORCH, is a large multipurpose, covered outdoor event space with restrooms and storage. The slatted skin and large sliding doors provide air circulation and transparency during the day and become a community beacon when softly lit at night.

Flexibility was critical for the design. ThefrontPorch functions as a stage for large events on the lawn, shaded space for outdoor fitness, enclosed space for smaller events, and a place for families and friends to gather around picnic tables while kids play on the adjacent playground.

Physical and mental wellness is crucial to every community’s health. The fitBARN is a multifunctional gym and fitness center serving the Harvest community. fitBARN contains a large indoor equipment space, outdoor lap pool, outdoor exercise area, restrooms and storage. Glazed openings create a connection with the surrounding context, blur interior and exterior space, and form a visual link with the linear green axis.

From the Judges
The icon imagery is outstanding, and the way multiple buildings layer together and are complemented by the landscape architecture is stunning. The open design allows for a lot of natural ventilation, which is very fitting for the climate it’s in, and provides good flow and openness for an effective gathering spot—with almost a Central Park-type feel.
