The serenity of the mission is embedded in the buildings. It seems complete.” 24 Oculus Summer 2013 HANRAHANMEYERS ARCHITECTS DESIGN TEAM: Thomas Hanrahan, RA, NCARB, Victoria Meyers, RA, AIA, LEED GA, Anita Ng, AIA, LEED AP INTERIOR DESIGNER & CLIENT REPRESENTATIVE: Myonggi Sul Design LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT: Seo An Landscape LIGHTING DESIGN: Light and Space Associates STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS: Wayman C. Wing Consulting Engineers; Hage Engineering M/E/P ENGINEER: CSArch GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEER: Dente Engineering Wes Design KITCHEN DESIGN: GENERAL CONTRACTOR: ©Michael Moran/OTTO he design of the Won Dharma Center strikes a balance between the built and the natural environment. Though secluded within a five-acre site in the Hudson Valley, the 32,000-square-foot spiritual retreat, built on a gently sloping hill, is open and inviting. Evident throughout are references to Korean Buddhist temples and villages and the symbol of the sect, the circle. The focal point is a meditation hall, conceived as a simple, rectangular-shaped wooden structure with mountain views. Four spiral-shaped wooden buildings that house offices, dining rooms, and spaces for residents and guests are loosely clustered around a courtyard used for meditative walks. Features that exemplify the organization’s sensitivity towards nature and desire to be eco-friendly include the positioning of buildings toward the west and south to provide optimal daylighting, overhangs to prevent excessive heat gain, and passive and geothermal cooling systems. The project meets LEED Gold standards. ■ T Heitmann Builders 2013 AIANY Design Awards http://www.naylornetwork.com/arc-nxt/
