enough to accommodate a few pieces
of equipment for crafts and hobby-level
projects. In this case, Masonic Village had
grown its existing shop to the point where
an expansion was absolutely needed. Since
the size and program for the shop was far
beyond what we've typically seen, our team
spent a fair amount of time researching the
building type and identifying systems that
would be employed. Our greatest resources
ultimately were three craftsmen who lead
the Masonic Village woodshop group. They
knew everything there was to know about
their equipment and how they wanted their
shop to function.

Tell us about the involvement of those
residents and how their knowledge
and passion for this craft guided the
project.
The three craftsmen were our primary contacts during design. From the very beginning,
they had a specific vision for what they wanted and needed. We met together regularly to
review design iterations within the context of
their desired workflow and equipment needs.
This core group offered input, and they were
respectful of the design team and allowed
us to take their ideas and mold them into the
end product.

The exterior is simple, but a lot of planning went into creating that aesthetic.
What was the design process like to
achieve something understated yet appropriate for the environment and use?
The agrarian context certainly informed the
final aesthetic. Other constraints, such as site
orientation, function, and budget, required that
we maintain a simple expression of character.
Ultimately, quality materials assembled in a
simple way made the appropriate statement
for this project.
What do you think this amenity space
can teach other communities and
designers about answering the needs
of residents and supporting their interests in a meaningful way, even if on a
much smaller scale?
Cultivating resident interests and personal
development is vital to the success of any
community. Spaces and buildings that host
this sort of activity can become a sense of
pride for the residents who use them. The
Rooster Woodshop hosts 46 residents daily,
and we're told that there's a waiting list to
join the club. Buildings like this can be the
centerpiece of a community's brand and a
marketing gem. The need to provide spaces
that allow continued personal growth cannot
be undervalued.

mechanical systems were integral to the design of the woodshop for filtration of dust and debris.
