Interstate 89 Welcome Centers, Williston, Vermont

Extending the presence of the Vermont Tourism Bureau, the Welcome Center Program called for two new tourist information centers fulfilling a variety of different functions – reception area, restrooms, a shop with regional crafts and products, interactive information center – all housed within a vernacular expression of architecture, the Vermont Barn, and set within an agrarian setting. The landscape design is a sculptural interpretation of the agrarian landscape composed of oversized rolling furrows, apple orchards, outdoor seating, and a picnic area comprised of whimsical picnic furniture reminiscent of farm implements artistically arranged within a farm yard.
