bld architecture designed a phased master plan for the park ridge organization in manorville, ny. the plan covers 20 acres of property that is dedicated for the “smart growth” walkable development that includes seven buildings and a village center. the plan was developed in collaboration with the local civics and the town of brookhaven. the design provides spaces for retail, medical, restaurants and medical offices space.
currently five of the three of the buildings are built and two more are under construction. the individual structures are united by a distinctive architecture that is derived from the rural character of the surrounding community. inspired by vernacular residential and agricultural buildings, the campus serves as a model for development that reflects the sense of place and context of its surroundings.
