Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture Masterplan

Project icon

Tarrytown, New York, USA

The Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is a non-profit farm and educational center and home to the world-renowned restaurant Blue Hill. Stone Barns serves to demonstrate, teach, and promote organic agriculture and regional cuisine in the Hudson Valley. 

Having been at the front end of this movement for over 15 years, Stone Barns is uniquely positioned to offer paradigm-shifting innovations far into the future, starting with the development of an ecologically- and agriculturally-driven cuisine that shifts food culture in the region. Giving those future innovations a spatial language, grounding them in shared values, and defining how they reach the wider world, are the unique design opportunities of this masterplanning process.

Our team is working closely with the Stone Barns and Blue Hill leaders to imagine the future of the campus. Knowledge drawn from the physical site and its history is captured throughout our ongoing engagement to build a shared vocabulary and vision to drive the project forward. Through an immersion process, we have identified major needs, challenges, and opportunities of current campus programming and operations, and in our masterplan design work aligns solutions with a conceptual design language for emerging strategic initiatives and future infrastructural development on campus.
