Space Communicates

Located in New Canaan, Connecticut, Grace Farms was established with the idea that space communicates and can inspire people to collaborate for good. To realize this vision, Grace Farms Foundation set out to create a multipurpose building nestled into the existing habitat that would enable visitors to experience nature, encounter the arts, pursue justice, foster community, and explore faith.

Approximately 77 of the 80 acres are being preserved in perpetuity as open meadows, woods, wetlands, and ponds. Prior to restoring native habitats, Grace Farms was once a patchwork of small rural properties and a private equestrian facility.

The architect SANAA’s goal was to make the River building become part of the landscape without drawing attention to itself. Under the continuous roof are five transparent glass-enclosed volumes that can host a variety of activities and events, while maintaining a constant sense of the surrounding environment. There are two accompanying barns with meeting rooms and offices.
