Cricket Hill Barn, Bennington College
In a world that thrives on the increasing complexity of advancements and technology, simplicity is a rare commodity. The purity of a simple design can encompass a greater meaning, a greater symbolism, and a greater synergy. This opportunity was presented at Bennington College, where a thoughtful, historically sensitive renovation transformed a neglected barn into an appealing multi-functional space and into a tribute to its rich campus and local history. The Cricket Hill Barn is a place where one can escape busy campus life to enjoy the pristine beauty of the building itself and the landscape beyond.
